Summer Reading

Every year, The Reykjavik City Library encourages children to read! The library livens up with games in which children can win prizes for reading.

Discover new books

Every summer we take an exciting literary trip! Children take part in the journey by filling out a form with the books they read, which we will hang on the walls of the library over the summer.

We’ll pick a lucky bookworm every week to receive a book from the publisher Bókabeitan, an interview with the newspaper Fréttablaðið, and the title Bookworm of the Week!

Promotional materials for the Summer Reading 2020 campaign were designed by illustrator Elín Elísabet who, for example, illustrated the books Álfarannsóknin, Jólasveinarannsóknin, and Dularfulla símahvarfið.

We also have copies of the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture’s Reading Map, which contains a reading list for primary school children that the library created in collaboration with the Félag fagfólks á skólabókasöfnum association.
