Principles and Policies

Welcome to Reykjavík City Library – open space for all

Reykjavík City Library operates eight libraries where culture and community flourish. Each branch has its own charm and specialties, so everyone can find something that suits them and make the most of the services on offer.

We encourage our users to stop by, whether to browse through the materials, take part in a workshop, have a coffee, see an exhibition, use the equipment in our Makerspaces, spend some quality time with their family, or meet with a book club.

The Reykjavík City Library is in constant development and our staff works hard to offer exciting material to borrow, professional information services and fun and diverse events. We welcome new ideas and are always ready to support and participate in all kinds of projects that we think belong under the library’s umbrella.

We celebrate the diversity of our community and are proud of the Reykjavík City Library’s Rainbow Certification.
