Story hour

The Nordic House Children’s library has Story hours in five Nordic languages: Icelandic, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Finnish.
For information about story hours in Faroese or Greenlandic please write to Telma(at)

We read books, sing songs and encourage the children to play and interact in Nordic languages. The story hour is recommended for children age 2–10, but everyone that understands the language is welcome to join us.

Story hours are for parents and children who want to meet other families who speak the same language. Parents are welcome to participate together with the children or to have a look in the bookshelves upstairs.
