Language café

In the library’s language café you have the opportunity to, in an informal and fun way, practice a new language by chatting over a cup of tea or coffee. Language is at the heart of this café. The language café often has a "language leader" but it is the participants who decide the subjects of the discussion. A language café-session will last for an hour or two, and they occur on a regular basis. Some language cafés are part of a study group and others are drop-in classes where you do not have to register in advance. Language cafés are open to the public, free of charge, and are based on the participants' contributions to the conversations. At the International Library, we often have language cafés for practicing Swedish, but there are also, sometimes, groups for other languages.


On the library’s ground floor there are public toilets for visitors.

Wireless internet

The entire library is equipped with wireless internet or WiFi. If you have your own computer, you can link up to our wireless network. Just accept the rules for using the wi-fi named Stockholms_stadsbibliotek.
