Stopped in the library to fill out some post cards and ended up staying awhile. They had a John Lennon tribute book to write your sentiments. This will be opened in the future so that was kind of cool.
FREE exhibition at the library. A good exhibition on when we visited, but also has a rolling slide-show (goes on for AGES!) recording the people and places of Iceland. This provides an admirable societal insight into the country and people. Magic!
Nice library, helpful staff, and photography museum on top floor with interesting, quality exhibits. Current exhibit was on Portraits by Hasselblad Award Winners. Good rainy weather place to go to. Scenic view of city from top floor.
Had to go in here to check in online and print boarding passes.
The staff were fantastic!!! So helpful and considerate.
They seem to have many walks and talks for tourists and locals alike.
I'd recommend calling in for a browse.
