About Copenhagen Libraries

Who we are

Copenhagen Libraries is the largest public library organization in Denmark. It consists of a main library, 19 branch libraries and special services at hospitals and prisons. 

Copenhagen Libraries was founded in the late 19th century.  It has played an important part in the formation and development of modern Copenhagen and its well-educated population.

The public libraries provide free access for the general public to all kinds of media, including books, newspapers/magazines, music, DVDs, audiobooks and online resources. The free and equal access to library services through the public libraries is granted to citizens by legislation, more specifically The Act Regarding Library Services.

Copenhagen Libraries is part of the Culture and Leisure Administration.
