The library is an open meeting place and cultural center, meant for everybody. It offers magazines, books, music, movies and other material that you can browse on the spot or borrow and take home with you. You can study, engage in a hobby and hang out on library premises. Libraries also arrange instruction, guidance, digital support, events, and exhibitions.
Libraries provide the customers with a wLAN (wireless local area network), computers and the most common software. Many libraries also lo…an various objects.
