Library and heme houses; This former Agricultural School was designed by architect De Bever from Eindhoven at the initiative of the municipality and the Boerenbond and built in 1951 by contractor J. Wijnen. On top of the school is a weather vane with the text and logo of the NCB. On either side of the school building are a gate with wrought iron entrance gates and two teachers' houses belonging to the school. In 1970 the name of RK Primary Agricultural School was changed to Primary Agricultural and Horticultural School. In 1993 the school merged with the Waterdael College. In 1994 the school was converted into a library and playgroup. One house is now in use as a Heemhuis and the other is furnished as an Archeology House. In the original bicycle shed you can see a collection of old utensils from the last century. In 2012, the municipality commissioned the (former) Someren artist Anne Verhoijsen to create a suitable work of art for the library. Anne has designed a facade text that is attached to the wall next to the main entrance of the library in a handwritten text, made of stainless steel material. The two separate sentences refer to the book as an object as well as to what this object has to offer; text. The text reads; "it is written" "it is said". In the spring of 2012, during the annual Boekenweek, the work was applied to the outside of the library.
