AWC Library Chair: Ellen Bolick
The American Women’s Club Library houses approximately 3500 titles and several hundred DVDs. You will find a large selection of classic and contemporary fiction, travel and biography, as well as a wide-ranging collection of fiction and non-fiction about the Netherlands in our Dutch section. There is also a wide choice of children’s books to be found in a cheerful and child-friendly area of the Library, in addition to many youth fiction titles. Both the daytime and evening book club selections may be borrowed from the Library.

Since 2016, the AWC’s Library holdings have been inventoried and may now be accessed by smart phones or tablets to facilitate borrowing, return, and inquiries. Details are available at the front desk at the clubhouse. The Library is available during the opening hours of the clubhouse: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 to 2:00pm.

Donations policy: With great regret, due to shelf and space limitations, the Library is unable to accept donated books. Proposed gifts to the Library should be discussed with the Librarian. The AWC The Hague celebrates the written word and we invite you to join us. We are open whenever the Front Office is manned: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

If you need to contact us, please send an email to or go to our Contact Us page and direct your enquiry to the AWC Library.
