Tengivirkið - Young People Connect

Thursday February 10th 2022

Today at Tengivirkið we will hear two interesting presentations. 

Helga Margrét Guðmundsdóttir, project manager at The Laugardalur and Háaleiti Reykjavik Service Centre will tell us about the service offered by the city, the opportunities and the help that is provided.

The Reykjavík City Library runs seven libraries around the city and at each one of them you can find all sorts of options such as books (in many different languages), board games, magazines, cd's and vinil records. We get to hear about the collection as well as the various services and events that are offered at the libraries - for excample sewing machines, computers, printers, podcast studios, concerts, art exhibitions and Icelandic lessons.  

At Tengivirkið - Young People Connect, people aged 16 - 25, whose native language is not Icelandic, meet others with diverse backgrounds and experience, in a good and relaxing environment. They learn some Icelandic through diverse ways with an experienced teacher and receive some presentations from interesting organisations and parties. 

Tengivirkið is a part of the library's development as an open space where users are sought to be involved in programming and make the space their own.

Free of charge - no obligation
All the Tengivirki's events start at 4pm and last for about 90minutes.
