Where? Tervuren, Belgium
Recommended by: Joanneke Elliot
The new site is on a busy high street in Tervuren, an affluent, family-friendly area popular with Brussels’ thousands of English-reading and speaking expatriates, as well as with English-fluent locals. It is also conveniently close to several English private international schools. The new location is delightfully cosy, with comfortable areas to sit and read or linger to discover new titles. Treasure Trove has designated areas for babies to early readers, and junior fiction and non-fiction up to young adult. The different sections also include books on parenting, dyslexia and English as a Second Language for children and teens.
The staff is dedicated and very knowledgeable. With published authors and international school librarians among their ranks, they have strong connections to the English-language community in Brussels. At the moment they are developing an extensive website to accompany the personal and enthusiastic newsletter that is sent out every month. They also host several children’s events such as author visits, story-time, summer reading parties, and story contests."
