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.
