Gerðuberg children‘s department

Gerðuberg has a beautiful, spacious children’s department! The library’s lime green room illustrated by Ninna Þórarinsdóttir is full of adventure for the children. We always have stuffed animals and building blocks for the youngest children and Lego and games for the older ones. 

Teenagers and kids who are old enough can check out our Makerspace with its computers, 3D printer, and vinyl cutter. 

We sometimes pull out our wagon with arts and crafts supplies for the children. In addition, we also bring out our costume and toy chests on special occasions.

Story time and family mornings

The library offers story time and library tours for groups. Every week we also host family time for parents and children that haven’t started preschool .  

At Gerðuberg we host Family Time, also known as Parent Mornings, under the direction of staff from the Breiðholt municipal service centre and four preschools in the neighbourhood. New parents are especially welcome to bring their children who haven’t started preschool.

Baby changing facilities can be found on the first floor.  

We also have a large selection of children’s books, in Icelandic and in other languages, which bilingual children of all ages can enjoy!
