An international library

Gentofte Kommune is an international municipality and the Gentofte Libraries offer a vast selection of books in other languages than Danish.

At the main library Gentofte Hovedbibliotek there is even a section called International.

Here you will find a selection of fiction and non-fiction in English, including a section about Denmark, the Danes, Danish culture, and Danish fiction translated to English. There is also a selection of books in Arabic, Chinese, and Russian and a section of World Literature - books either translated into English from other languages or written in English by authors from former colonies. 

Would you like to practice your Danish? Join us at Gentofte Hovedbibliotek Thursdays from 5 to 6pm and let the Danish language ambassadors guide you through the tongue-twisting Danish. All levels welcome. Read more here.

At Ordrup Bibliotek you can practice your Spanish skills every Monday from 4 to 5.30pm at the Spanish Café. Whether you are fluent in the language or just starting out you are most welcome. 

You are always welcome to use our free Wi-Fi at the library. We also have a vast selection of digital media and ressources for you to use as well. Both here at the library and at home, once you have registered.
