DEICHMANSKE BIBLIOTEK

Debeli and me are huge book lovers. While I read two books at the same time, because I cannot decide between professional literature and something completely different, Debeli manages at least one crime story in a week. Luckily, we have a library in the neighborhood that we also use for borrowing various social games, printing and photocopying. Two kroners per piece of paper. The chepest in the city.

Deichmanske library is the oldest and the largest Norwegian public library. The library was founded thanks to Norwegian businessman, philanthropist and a book collector, Carl Deichmans, who left his collection of 7000 books and over 150 manuscripts to the city of Oslo. The library was officially opened on 12th of January 1785.

The building was built in 1933 by the designs of Nils Reiersen, the architect

After the terrorist attack on July 22nd in 2011 parts of the library were severely damaged, so the library remained closed for two months after a fatal event.

Together with the main library and 19 city branch offices, including special departments, such as a prison or hospital library, Deichmanske bibliotek employs over 270 employees.

The multilingual library was established as a separate department in 1983.

At the beginning of 2013, a decision was made to build a new central library in Bjørvika Bay, near the Opera and the new Munch Museum. The new building should be open to the public in 2020. Let’s wait and see!

 


TKO ČITA, ZLO NE MISLI

Debeli i ja smo veliki knjigoljupci. Dok ja mjescima čitam dvije knjige u isto vrijeme, jer se nemrem odlučit između stručne literature i nečeg skroz desetog, Debeli redovito sredi jednu (krimi) storiju tjedno. Sreća naša, u susjedstvu imamo knjižnicu. I to onu glavnu koju koristimo za podizanje knjiga, raznih društvenih igara te printanje ili fotokopiranje. Dvije krune primjerak. Najjeftinije u gradu 🙂

Deichmanske bibliotek najstarija je i najveća norveška javna knjižnica. Knjižnica je utemeljena zahvaljujući norveškom biznismenu, filantropu i kolekcionaru knjiga, Carlu Deichmansu, koji je u oporuci gradu ostavio svoju kolekciju koja se sastojala od 7000 knjiga i preko 150 rukopisa. Knjižnica je svečano otvorena 12. siječnja 1785. godine.

Nakon terorističkog napada 22. srpnja 2011. dijelovi knjižnice bili su teško oštećeni, tako da je centrala ostala zatvorena dva mjeseca nakon nemilog događaja.

Knjižnica zapošljava preko 270 zaposlenika u glavnoj knjižnici i 19 gradskih podružnica u gradu uključujući i posebne odjele, poput zatvorske ili bolničke knjižnice.

Početkom 2013. godine donešena je odluka da se izgradi nova centralna knjižnica u Bjørvika zaljevu, drito uz Operu i novi Munch muzej. Nova zgrada trebala bi biti otvorena za javnost 2020. godine. Počekajmo i vidjet ćemo!
