Abstract: In Leiden, located in the province of Zuid-Holland, the local public library was founded in 1910 and is situated in the historic old town. Leiden has over 118,000 inhabitants and is home to the oldest Dutch university. Over 30,000 people study in Leiden, the majority of them actually live in the city. Leiden has 13 museums, which represent 30% of Dutch cultural property. After working with the Tobias library system, the Leiden Public Library will migrate to Vubis Smart to meet the automation needs of its four main branches, five sub-branches and one library bus. One of the services that the library provides is that the public can access the internet free of charge within the building, as long as they bring their own laptop with WiFi card. In the future Leiden are planning to build a large fibre optic network which will enhance communications. They are also hoping to offer a virtual museum tour.
