Experience what the Botkyrka Public Library has to offer!
The Botkyrka Public Library consists of six neighborhood libraries: Alby, Fittja, Hallunda, Tullinge, Tumba and Vårsta. Stop by the Vårsta library any day of the week from 8 am to 8 pm—it doesn't matter whether any librarians are there or not.
Regardless of the neighborhood library you go to, you can borrow audiobooks, eBooks, “Talking Books”, large print books, CDs, DVDs, BluRays and many other kinds of materials in addition to regular books and periodicals in a number of different languages. You may also use our public computers.
Borrow material at one neighborhood library and return it at another one if you like. It doesn't cost anything to order material from neighborhood libraries in Botkyrka or to get on the waiting list for something you would like to borrow.
