The ‘Librije’ is a unique 16th century public library in the St. Walburga’s Church in Zutphen.The building and the interior of the library have remained almost unchanged throughout the ages.Some books have been chained to the reading desks since the time of foundation.On the pillars Master Wilhelm painted representations of the four Evangelists, St. Barbara, St. Catherine, St. Peter and St. Paul, St. Walburga and several other saints.In the floor under the reading desks we can see tracks made by the Devil. According to a poem by the 19th century poet A.C.W. Staring, the Devil caught the monk Jaromir eating a chicken in the ‘Librije’ during Lent! The Devil punished Jaromir by locking him up in the ‘Librije’ for one night.There is room for approximately 300 books on the reading desks. The catalogue contains about 750 titles.
