Reykjavik City Library - nice place for children

February 26, 2012

We would like to introduce you to some of our favorite places in Reykjavik. Starting with the Reykjavik City Library. It is located by the harbor and has a beautiful view over the ocean. I go there regularly with my son because  their children's  department is so nice. Children under eighteen can get a free library card and borrow up to 15 books.

A small corner in the children´s department.

Apart from Icelandic, you can get books in the Scandinavian languages...

...And in English of course.

There is an easel with a paper roll and some colored pencils to draw with. My 4yr old son drew this at our last visit. "Takk" means thank you in Icelandic.
