You can now use our library services without a corona passport, but remember you still need it for exhibitions, events, cafes, canteens, and on university campuses.

Welcome to the library. Now we're beginning to look like ourselves, but there are still some things you need to be aware of when it comes to COVID-19.

We must continue to keep a good distance, and therefore there are fewer seats in our reading rooms and in our study facilities than we had before the corona lockdowns.

Now you can use the vast majority of our library functions, including loans, drop-offs and reading rooms without a corona passport and face mask.

Please note, however, that having a corona passport if you enter university buildlings is still a requirement and that some of our libraries are actually located in university buildings.

In the following buildings you do not need a corona passport to use our library offers:

  • Det Kgl. Bibliotek, Victor Albecks Vej, Aarhus
  • The Black Diamond, Copenhagen
  • Danmarks Kunstbibliotek, Nyhavn, Copenhagen
  • Study Room Søborg, Danmarks Kunstbibliotek
  • The Faculty Library of Science, Nørre Allé, Copenhagen
  • The Faculty of Social Sciences Library, Gothersgade, Copenhagen
  • The Faculty of Humanities Library, Søndre Campus, Copenhagen

However, be aware that you will need a corona passport if you are to:

  • Attend an event with us
  • See an exhibition in The Black Diamond, Copenhagen
  • Eat inside a café or public canteen in one of our buildings.

Notice the signage in our buildings and follow the staff's instructions.

If you need a service that requires a corona passport, we hope for your understanding and cooperation in our control. If you are exempt from showing a corona passport, we must ask you to show documentation. Documentation for exemption can be obtained from the citizen service centre in your municipality. You can read more about the corona passport at coronasmitte.dk or at sundhed.dk.

Exhibitions and events

From 21 April, you can experience the critically acclaimed Nick Cave exhibition "Stranger Than Kindness" in The Black Diamond in Copenhagen (remember that you must buy a ticket in advance), and from 18 May we will also begin our cultural events again. We are very much looking forward to that.

Remember that the rules about COVID-19 passports apply in our exhibition and at our events.

Café and canteens

Our café in The Black Diamond, Copenhagen is open for the sale of food and drinks, which you can enjoy in the café or take with you and enjoy outside. On sunny days there will be a pop-up café on the quay.

The canteen on Victor Albecks Vej, Aarhus is also open.

Remember that you need a corona passport to eat indoors.
