2024-02-23: New in RBL | Co'lab boxes & M'eating room

The RBL aims to optimally fulfill its role as an accessible meeting point. Therefore, we have recently introduced a number of new features. The two brand-new 'co'lab boxes' at the back of the library are ideally suited for all kinds of group work activities. In the social space (the 'm'eating room'), you can relax or have a chat, but also eat your own brought lunch or drink coffee.
