The latest instalment in my Library ABC has been posted here. It covers the letters V, W, and X. I had no photos for the letter X, but a colleague in Germany kindly pointed me to a city named Xanten. That brought back memories. While I was working at IFLA in The Hague I’m sure I must have passed through or close to Xanten on the Intercity train from the Netherlands to Frankfurt am Main, where I went several times for the Frankfurt Book Fair. The Librarian of the Stadbücherei Xanten kindly provided me with a set of lovely images, presenting me with an embarras du choix —they were so good that I could not simply choose one only. Therefore I put together a set of additional images for all three of the selected libraries. Enjoy!
