Covid-19 restrictions

15th April - 13th of May 2021 

All Reykjavik City Libraries are open. The general limit on the size of gatherings is now 50% of permitted gathering in all the libraries and everyone is kindly asked to registrate when they enter the buildings, applying to all individuals born in or before 2014.  Face-masks are required and the 2-m distancing rule is followed. Children born in or after 2005 do not need to wear masks, but are included in the total count and must observe the 2-m social distancing rule. More info here. 

Our opening hours are mostly unaffected. See here.

Regular cleaning and disinfection

Returned items are always disinfected and we will continue to do so, as well as regularly disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.


Don't forget that the E-Library is always open! Read more about the E-Library here.
