The new children´s floor LÆS

The Children’s Floor LÆS is an all-new type of childrens library that uses neuroscience and knowledge about children’s reading habits and language acquisition to connect reading with playing and learning. In LÆS, Copenhagen Main Library has dedicated 1000 square meters to support linguistic development and the love of reading in children aged 0 to 12 years, through 10 activity zones that together form a landscape of nature- and urban-areas open for exploring, discovering books and being challenged physically.

One of the new zones is dedicated books in English and other selected languages.
