Libraries for children

Stuck for something to do with your children? We have the answer. Copenhagen’s libraries contain children’s sections offering a large number of books in various languages, as well as films, games and music.

The libraries have something for children of all ages and younger children can play with various toys and puzzles, or put on fancy dress, for example. They are also the locations for numerous events and activities aimed especially at children.



The following are some examples of children’s sections:

The Main Library  has a large children’s and youth section on the second floor in the area facing Krystalgade. The section contains both fiction and non-fiction on a large number of subjects, and in many different languages. It offers picture books, novels for young people, audiobooks, children's comics, music, films and games. You can play Wii and we also have PCs and iPads for children. There is also a small play area for younger children, as well as various toys and puzzles. 

Music for children from 18 months to 6 years of age is offered this autumn at the Children’s music lounge (Børnenes musiksalon) at Sydhavnen Library. This involves playing, singing and dancing.

Blågården's Library is aimed at young people and teenagers.

Ørestad Library is a combined public and school library. It is especially targeted at children.

Elsewhere centres for children are also located in the same buildings as libraries:

For example, Børnekulturstedet is located within the same building as Vesterbro Library. The aim of Børnekulturstedet (The Children’s Culture Place) is to secure access for children, young people and their parents to rich and varied cultural opportunities. Many events and activities for children and parents take place at Børnekulturstedet.
