Find your way around the library

The National Library consists of both a grand 19th century building and a beautiful, modern glass annex. Here you will find several reading rooms. Where to turn to depends on the type of material you want to study.

The reading rooms are mainly intended for those studying material from the collections of the National Library (Kungliga biblioteket, KB). Other visitors are welcome to use the reading rooms if there are places available. Remember that opening hours may differ for various reading rooms. Find the opening hours here.


Take a look into the closed storage rooms

Under the library building in Humlegården, there are two man-made caverns. This is where most of the KB’s collections are held in closed storage rooms. Take our virtual tour and get a 360-degree look around.
