Billund Bibliotek efter 21 maj 2016


Children’s culture is a high-priority focus area in Billund Municipality when it comes to carrying out the vision for the Capital of Children.

The town council has therefore decided that Billund Center will be a resource center for children’s culture and will create the settings for children’s cultural experiences, active cultural production and creative learning in Billund Municipality. The first step in this development is to modernize Billund Library and Citizen Service in 2016. The whole budget amounts to 7,3 mio kr. On the homepage   5 veje til vækst you can read more about Billund Municipality’s development strategies.

Billund Libraries og Citizen Service are attending (from 2013) the Danish Agency for Culture’s model programme for future public libraries – in our concern with a special focus on children. Additionally the Danish Agency for Culture’s development fund for public and school libraries has granted 390.000 kr. for the further process of a co-operation with Signal Architects. The result of this is guidelines and content elements for the modernizing of the library and citizen service, and models which show how we and local cooperating partners can develop joint children cultural activities. 

Due to to the above-mentioned the library and citizen service will be modernized and at the same time a design concept for the master plan of the entire development of the Billund Center will be developed. In the upcoming process Billund Libraries & Citizen Service will work together with Rosan Bosch Studio, who work in the cross field between art, design and architecture. Among other projects they are the company behind the full arrangement of Hjørring Library.
