Going to the library is a popular cultural activity in Denmark, and the local library is a good entry to cultural events in Denmark. You can obtain a library card and use library facilities free of charge. The libraries lend out books in Danish and in other languages, magazines, audio books, CDs and films on DVD. You can also log on to the Internet via the library’s PCs free of charge, read newspapers and borrow books from other libraries.
Helping schoolchildren with their homework is another service offered by many libraries.
In most municipalities, the public libraries provide access to downloading music, film streaming, downloading e-books, downloading audio books and access to databases, either from home or from the library’s PCs.
The libraries’ many activities also include cultural events such as author’s nights, art exhibitions, concerts, lectures, book readings, children’s films and theatre performances.
