About Reykjavik City Library, Reykjavik

This city library has a lot to offer visitors. Yes, their catalogue is incredibly valuable and diverse, with books, magazines, films, music, computers, documentaries and even comic books and all of this in Icelandic and other languages. But they also have a games section for kids, a cafe that you can hang out in, and internet access. Additionally the library organises events and exhibitions, mostly focuses on literature and culture. Keep yourself updated on the library website for updated events. And all of this is free. Technically there are six other branches, but this is the only one you need to bother visiting.

Reykjavik City Library, Reykjavik Reviews

  • The main city library. It has a very good toddler, kids area on the second floor. Loads of childrens books. Toys, dress-up and a fish-tank. (Please remember to take your and your kids shoes off before going into the specific play area for toddlers/infants). Loads of books in icelandic and english. Some in german, sweedish etc. Staff is helpful.

  • I barely scratched the surface of this place but I've never seen a municipal library with such a collection of comics in my life! I could spend weeks here. And, unlike almost everything else in this very expensive town it's free to use.

  • Good Library!

  • Mikið úrval af bókum og fínt umhverfi til þess að vinna. Ókeypis Wi-Fi er til staðar.

  • Best library in Iceland!!/ Besta bókasafnið á Íslandi.
