If you love stories, it’s quite certain that everything has started some time ago because of a book. Whether you are old or young, that you’ve already learnt to read or not, this is the right place to find all the stories you want.


At Scuola Holden you can find books in Fronte del Borgo and Michele Cappetta is our librarian. We’ve got an online catalogue: but if you need some advice or you look for a quiet place to read and study, come at Fronte del Borgo: there are armchairs, coffee, free wifi and interesting bookshelves in which you can poke around.


In order to borrow our books and films you’ll get a card of the Biblioteche Civiche Torinesi (Turin public libraries). The card is free, easy to get, it allows you to borrow books in every city library.


Are you always on a hurry? Send us an email or call us and we’ll get it. You can borrow and give books back at the Reception (better to be sure they’ve first arrived). The Holden Reception opening time to give books back is: from Monday to Friday, 9 am -6 pm.



Reading is a vice that needs attentions and we want to keep on doing it with care.



  • We adore presents! If you want to give us books, DVDs or board games, please send an email to Michele (biblioteca@scuolaholden.it) or phone us (+39 011 6632812). We’ll tell you if and when we can receive your presents.
