We hold over 450 events, exhibitions and IT introductions annually.

The IT tutors are booked annually for more than 150 sessions in ‘Netværkstedet’ (‘the networkshop’, our space for computer work and support).

The Citizens Service serves approx. 40,000 citizens a year.

We have more than 455,000 physical materials. Some of them are in our book storages; where we will find them for you if needed.

Our collection also contains over 155,000 ebooks and audiobooks.

We have almost 700,000 loans of physical materials annually. To this should be added our lending of ebooks, audiobooks, movie streaming and other digital services.
