How to let yourself in

All members of Elsinore Shire's Libraries can use the library outside of the opening hours where staff is present. At the front door of the library, you will find a control panel. Insert your health card or library card and enter your 4-digit code. The door will now open and you can enter the vestibule. There is another control panel to the left of the doors where you also need to use your card and pin to enter the library proper.

Take care of our communal library

You can use all of the library's facilities in the self-serve opening hours: Read papers and magazines, use the computers, photocopy (if you have a printer card), collect reserved material and of course borrow and return books, films and games on the library's self-service automats. Note that we register who enters the library, and the library area is video monitored.

What's on

Author talks, speeches, internet courses and knitting clubs for adults. Toy library and children's film for toddlers. Espergærde Library has a wide variety of activities on their program. See the calendar under 'Oplev' in the top menu for upcoming events (in Danish).

Large children’s art exhibition

Every autumn all the children's institutions in Elsinore organize a large exhibition of children's art. This is an example of the close cooperation there is between the library and the schools and children's institutions in the local area concerning exhibitions, activities and projects. Children's institutions are also welcome to arrange exhibitions all through the year. The library has an extensive co-operation with Espergærde area's arts and crafts associations and an active exhibition activity of work from professionals and amateurs.

Wireless network

At the library, you can use the internet with your pc, tablet or smartphone free.

Artistic decoration

Espergærde Library is surrounded by and filled with a number of significant art works. The most noticeable of these is Kasper Heiberg´s sculpture from 1983, which the library’s neighbors named ”The Book Worm”. The sculpture is set up along the library's front toward the road and is in three parts.

In the library courtyard there is a sculpture of Gunnar Westman -”Thor on a fishing trip with the Midgard serpent”. This was donated to the library in connection with the inauguration in 1982.

In 1990, Ursula Munch-Petersen and Erik Hagens created a wall decoration for the children's department in enameled metallic tiles effectively broken by rustic ceramic tiles.

Music practice room and audio newspapers

Espergærde Library houses the audio communal newspapers and a music practice room.
