The room can fit up to 14 people and as standard is equipped with a whiteboard and flipchart easel with paper and markers provided.

Fons Olterdissen rooms

The Fons Olterdissen rooms are located in the lower ground level of Centre Céramique. With open spaces and windows running along with southern wall of the building, there is always light in this area, despite it being lower ground. These rooms can be opened up with a flexible wall to create one large presentation space, or kept as two separate areas that can be used as meeting room, presentation areas or classrooms. Each room can hold up to 10 people in a meeting setting, combined they can hold up to 18 people. If you opt for the area as a presentation space, the Fons Olterdissenzaal can hold up to 40 people with a whiteboard and flipchart easel with paper and markers provided as standard.


Located on the fourth floor of Centre Céramique, with views to the north over Plein1992 our classroom is the ideal space for classes, training or seminar spaces. All 15 workstations in the classroom have their own PC, and the instructor’s PC is connected to the projector, which can be used in combination with the large screen / whiteboard.

Marie Koenen room

This interactive space is ideally suited to children’s activities. Located in the Children’s section of Maastricht City Library, the Marie Koenenzaal has glass walls for transparency when required, and also a surrounding curtain if more relaxed activities such as baby massage are to take place. The room can be set up with tables and stools for colouring, learning or discussions, or with blocks and a plush chair for holding story or rhyme time sessions. You are encouraged to bring your own craft materials and a flipchart easel with paper and markers can be provided if requested. There is also a children’s sized toilet off the main space that small children can make use of under adult supervision or older children on their own in privacy.


The Stadshal is a large exhibition space on the ground floor in the forecourt of the library. It can be used for a multitude of purposes; exhibitions, presentations, events.
