First we are visiting Viby Bibliotek -  a popular branch library located in the district Viby close to the center of Aarhus. During the last years the use of the library's premises had been rethought. The aim has been to develop and test new forms of services, facilities and activities that meet local citizens' needs and support the transition from library to community center. 

Hear about the change strategy 'Library Services - Shoulder to Shoulder' and the effort to bring the staff new skills in cooperating with the customers and providing events and activities. Get the chance to see the new facilities and interior that supports the strategy.

Louise Lærke Andersen will tell you about the 'Boghus' (Bookhouse) project, which is based on the Little Free Library concept. ”Boghus” (Bookhouse) is a project that will create small micro-libraries and communities within the neighbourhoods served by our branch libraries. We want people to share their books, to let their books move out into the world, and to take new and unexpected books home with them. It’s a new way to integrate literature into people’s everyday based on their specific lifestyles and situations. If we can’t get the busy families to the books, we can take the books to them.

We reserve the right to alterations and surprises
