Our Facilities and Space for Rent

We offer a cosy, multipurpose facility for library guests to study and/or work both alone or in groups. Guests are also welcome to sit at the cafe and read magazines, newspapers, and books from the library. 

The Gerðuberg facilities for young people are diverse and entertaining; we have a makerspace, hammocks, Fatboy beanbag chairs, a study area, and a wide collection of books, magazines, music, films and so on.

Do you need a place to study? You’ll find all kinds of nooks and crannies between the shelves where you can study in peace and quiet or in groups. You can also study at the café located centrally in the building. 


Exhibitions and events at Gerðuberg

Artists can apply to exhibit their work or put an event through our website: Exhibition application and Event application. The Reykjavik City Library’s 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.
