Mission

Collecting and preserving Flemish cultural heritage and granting public access to this collection, for a wide, contemporary and future audience. For decades, the Hendrik Conscience Library has pursued this mission, the very justification of its existence, now and in the future.

In carefully developing and preserving its collections, the Heritage Library is spurred on by the ambition to share this treasure trove of information, knowledge and inspiration, with the public, today and in the future. This is our heritage after all.
