Silkeborg LibraryApproximately 40 km west of Aarhus, Silkeborg is beautifully situated among some of the largest lakes and forests in Denmark. Silkeborg Library is an icon for library innovation in Denmark. They have been first in Denmark to provide free internet access for citizens, first with an automated receiving robot system and first to present 'The open library koncept'. Dedicated to meet citizens’ needs for learning and cultural experiences the library has re-designed spaces and services in the old library building. The library staff will share and discuss their strategies and their results with you. Doris Birch Friis and Maria Louise Christensen will be your hosts during the visit.
The number of visitors at Herning Bibliotekerne has tribled since the new library opened in Herning City in August 2014. The library in Herning is the meeting place of the town – a modern community center where citizens are free to get together, to learn, to experience and to apprehend culture and at the same time understand digital and social media. Where it is possible to study, to be inspired or to play – or simply just hang out with a cup of good coffee. A house full of good service – not to mention a multitude of cultural events and learning resources.
We are to witness a super modern library and head of Herning Bibliotekerne Pernille Schaltz will give us a guided tour including a talk about library development and service concept.
