For Ukrainians

A quick overview if you are looking for Ukrainian reading material.

You are free to spend time in the library where you can use our internet and read our magazines and newspapers. However, you need to register in our system to borrow library materials and to enter the library during self-service hours. We are happy to help you get started.

Events at the library

Language Café - Frivillig Aalborg, a part of Dansk Flygtningehjælp, is here to help you understand the Danish society. They offer help with homework as well as assistance with reading letters from authorities or writing job applications or just a chat in Danish.  The service takes place at the Main Library, Wednesdays 15.00-17.00.

Coffee and Ukrainian is a café for people who speak Ukrainian as well as other interested guests. The café is open every Wednesday 13.30 – 15.30. Read more about Coffee and Ukrainian here.

Reading materials

Here are some easy ways to get a hold of Ukrainian reading material in Denmark. Due to the consequence of the influx of Ukrainian refugees, the Danish libraries are trying to get a hold of more Ukrainian literature. More physical books are on their way, but in the meantime, we have compiled a list of readily available Ukrainian (ua)  and English (eng) material. Where possible, we prioritize online resources so you do not have to wait for physical books to arrive.
