Libraries

Iceland publishes more books per capita than any other in the world. Which means we also have a lot of libraries. The Icelandic libraries are free for all to visit, get a coffee, jump on the wifi or relax with a wide variety of books in many languages. The libraries in Iceland are most often used for many purposes, cultural houses, art galleries etc. Do yourself a favor, stop by and you might just be surprised.
