Ørestad Library

Ørestad Library is a combined public library and school library. The library occupies 1370 square metres on the two first floors of Ørestad School, a new building on the corner of Ørestad Boulevard and Arne Jacobsens Allé in Ørestad City. The school is next to Ørestad Gymnasium.

Ørestad Library is open for self‐service outside the staffed opening hours (on weekdays during the periods 7 am - 2 pm and 7 –8 pm, on Saturdays 7–10 am and 2 – 8 pm, and on Sundays and holidays 7 am – 8 pm). The library strives to maintain the same level of available services during the opening hours. This means that the library users have access to newspapers and magazines, are able to borrow and return material, collect reserved material, use computers, wireless internet and print documents. In order to use the library outside the manned opening hours, one must be 15 years of age and a registered user of Copenhagen's public library system. The 1st floor of Ørestad Library, which holds all non-fiction materials for both children and adults, is available in manned opening hours only.

The vision behind Ørestad Library, in addition to providing knowledge, and offering educational and cultural activites, is to give the surrounding area a space for the expression of its identity, social life and coexistence. While the library's goal is to provide a service for the school, institutions and workplaces in the area, it is equally important that it serves the inhabitants of Ørestad and the residential district east of Ørestad. Offering much more than just books, the library aims to be "the third place” - a house belonging to the citizens.

  • Library mapweb (interactive map of the library)
