Oslo Public Library (Deichman)


Deichman consists of 22 local libraries located all over Oslo. Deichman was founded in 1785 and is Norway’s oldest and largest public library. Oslo’s new main library, Deichman Bjørvika, is located between Oslo Central Station and the Opera house.

Whoever you are, a Deichman library is a place for you. In our libraries you are welcome to spend time reading, working, relaxing, meeting friends, or enjoying some peace and quiet.

Feel free to borrow whatever you like from our collection of more than a million books, movies, games, CDs and other media. All you need is a library card.
