School for farmers children est. 1722

Library since 1917 - many
rebuilds and renovations since then
but age shows

Latest addition 2012 - Citizen Service
Residential areas are equally distributed amongst apartment housing and single family houses

About 1/5 of the total area being old factories.

Usually divided into 4 parts: central Valby, Ålholm, Sjælør and Vigerslev

Valby library lies in the middle of central Valby

Valby has a long tradition, trying to keep itself separated from the rest of Copenhagen,
being a small-town village rather
than a part of a Capital

A view that has changed over the last few years

Although the train ride is only 8 minutes, the journey to Valby from central Copenhagen seems much longer

Known for Carlsberg and Nordisk Film
Valby library is challenged by the physical layout

•How can the physical layout or other initiatives in the library promote the feeling of possibility for sharing knowledge and asking for advice between users, in both the unmanned and manned hours?

•How can the physical layout or other initiatives promote the feeling of security in a Library in the absence of staff?

•How can the library (layout, staff etc.) acknowledge tacit knowledge among users and nonusers from the local community or surrounding communities and make it explicit and useful for the community?

249.000 borrowed materials per year

8 librarians, of which 3 are childrens librarians

4 citizen service and library frontdesk employees
