Books in your native language
Do not hesitate to ask a librarian for help if you cannot find what you are looking for. You can also search and order materials both in the library's own database and on the nationwide database here. The material will be send to the library you choose in Vesthimmerland where you can pick it up.

The World Library or Verdensbiblioteket is a digital library. You can stream movies and listen to music in more than 10 languages.

Opening hours
The opening hours are wide. After the librarians go home, you can still use all of the facilities. Off course we ask that you use it with care. It is not allowed to let others in the library using your personal Health Insurance Card. The consequense of breaking the regulations is exclusion from the library.
