Welcome to the library

Come Visit Us!

Gerðuberg runs an extensive operation: a library, a variety of events and exhibitions, an event space rental, café, and community centre. The library is very bright and spacious, besides the user has access to The OK and the Makerspace, both of which are especially designed with the needs of children and teenagers in mind.  We offer great selection of books, boardgames, magazines and other library items, in Icelandic and other languages.  Coffee is offered in the library from 8:30am -10:00am and 3:30pm - 6:00pm
