Temporary Newspapers Reading Room now open


A temporary Reading Room opened today, 3 April, across the hall from the regular Reading Room. During the renovation works, you can consult all documents in this temporary room, until the end of 2017, when the new Mediaroom will open.


Limited service

As the temporary Reading Room is smaller, we are forced to offer limited service, with fewer terminals available in the Reading Room.

We can only issue requests at these times:

  • 10 a.m.
  • 3 p.m.

A request form can be handed in at each time, for a maximum of two volumes.

The opening hours remain unchanged.


Reserve your seat

We kindly advise you to reserve your place beforehand. For more information and/or reservations, please contact us on newspapers@kbr.be or +32 (0)2 519 55 44.

More detailed information on the project is available in French or Dutch.
