Hringrásarsafnið opens in Grófin on May 21st at 11am-12pm

Libraries have always been part of the Circular Economy, but until now books have played a major role in our lending system. The library's users, however, have long called for more diversity in lending options, and as of 21 May, that call will be answered by opening Hringrásarsafnið.


Hringrásarsafnið is a pilot project in collaboration with Munasafn RVK Tool Library and the first self-checkout system has now been installed in Grófin. Borgarbókasafnið and Munasafnið called for ideas from users about what they wanted to see available in their local libraries and we received requests for projectors, staple gun, a pressure washer, a drill, gardening tools and camping gear. The items will be replaced according to the needs and wishes of the people, who will be given the opportunity to vote in what they want available.

Here is a list of the items currently available

  • Basic Tool Kit
  • Camping Cooler
  • Camping Set For 2
  • Drill
  • Gardening Kit
  • Heat Gun
