Tulip Institute is taking the initiative to establish a Turkish Children’s Library in the central library of Utrecht Neude in collaboration with Bibliotheek Utrecht. The books donated by parents will live with their names and reach hundreds of children!

We aim to bring bilingual children together in a city where the Turkish community predominantly lives to perpetuate their interest in the Turkish Language.

Would you pack a children’s book in your suitcase when returning from your holiday in Turkey this summer?
