Welcome to the Library

Come visit us!

The library has a diverse collection. We have newspaper subscriptions  and recommend reading the newspaper or latest magazines over a steaming hot cup of coffee in our bright room on the first floor. You're welcome to use the library's facilities as you please – to hang out, meet other people or host events. We put on lots of exhibitions at Spöngin and offer an exciting program of events for all ages: concerts, lectures, workshops and more!

We are located in a beautiful building at Spöngin 41, close to a variety of shops and services. In addition to the area residents, our neighbours at the Borgarholtskóli and Borgir schools visit the library frequently. Buses no. 6, 7 and 24 stop at Spöngin. For more information, visit straeto.is
