Covid-19 restrictions

28th of August - 18th of September 2021 

All Reykjavik City Libraries are open. The general limit on the size of gatherings is now  200 people. Masks must be worn wherever the 1-metre social distancing rule cannot be kept between individuals who are not closely linked. The obligation to wear a mask does not apply to children born 2006 or later. We encourage our users though to take precautions and wear masks when they visit our libraries. More info on Covid-restrictions here. 

Our opening hours are unaffected. See here.

Regular cleaning and disinfection

Returned items are always disinfected and we will continue to do so, as well as regularly disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.


Don't forget that the E-Library is always open! Read more about the E-Library here.

Reserve on the website

We remind our users that it is possible to reserve books, extend loans, renew library cards and much more, under My library, here on the website. We encourage you to use this service as much as possible. Here are instructions on how to make a reservation.  Feel free to give us a call on 411 6100 or send us a Facebook Message for any advice and help.
