Our Facilities

In Gerðuberg we offer a multipurpose facility where one can read books or magazines, relax, do some work or homework, attend an event or simply just be. The library is ideal for groups to meet up and discuss books, current affairs, play boardgames, do some handicraft or hang out in the café. Guests are always welcome to study, or read books or magazines from the library in the café. 

The computers are free to use for our guests, who are also welcome to get comfortable and read newspapers, magazines or other library material. Users are able to photocopy, print or scan documents for a small fee.

The Gerðuberg facilities for children and young people are both diverse and entertaining. The children‘s department is well equipped with a mixed collection of books, toys and cozy furniture and surroundings. The older kids can seek refuge both in the library, where they have access to books for 9-12 years old and also a good space to read and study for individuals or groups. 

Exhibitions and events at Gerðuberg

Artists can apply to exhibit their work or put on an event through our website. The Reykjavik City Library exhibition committee meets regularly to review and respond to applications. The committee reserves the right to define and shape the library exhibitions based on the focus of the events calendar at the time, and it accepts applications accordingly.
