Founded in 1948, the Royal Danish Library is known as the first public library. Also called the Black Diamond, due to its structure, the library was renovated and refurbished in 1999. For a great learning experience, the library offers all forms of literature in different international languages. Such literature ranges from newspapers to magazines, from poetry to novels and a collection of travel books to literary guides to Copenhagen and Denmark. This modern library also includes a café, restaurants, shops, exhibitions and the like. The library is accessible even on weekends.
