Model Programme for Public Libraries

Kultur styrrelsen




The Model Programme aims, among other things, to offer inspiration for new solutions and new design measures based on the libraries' own practice and context. Therefore, the Model Programme will present a number of cases featuring libraries in Denmark, as well as international libraries, which each offers exciting new interpretations of the public library's spaces and functions.

Find inspiration for your design challenges in the inspirational cases or in the thematic cases.
