“Photo Exhibition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Modern library. The photo exhibition was fascinating showing the last 50 years history of Iceland. They have some very unusual subject matters, was well worth a look.

“This is where the locals hang out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Icelanders tend to be a bit book-crazy. Libraries are great places to hang out and relax, and they have so many nice activities going on. Staff is really helpful and the selection of literature is just great.

“Photography museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Hoped to see some wonderfull landscape photographs. Once we found the museum on the 6th floor of the library the exhibits disapointed. There were so few and the best were the tourist shots. Its free so nothing lost.

“The best institution in the whole country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

The government and medical system, and just anything and everything else in Iceland and in the world, should strive to imitate the fantastic service provided by the public library of Reykjavík. Impressive !!! I'm not kidding - and I do not work there! :)
