The Seafarers' Library

Library for all seafarer's on board Danish ships

Ships can borrow books directly from the library in Copenhagen, but the services of the library are also available through one of the book depots at the Danish Government Seamen's Service stations or from seamen's churches and seamen's homes.

The library has books in Danish, Swedish, Faroese, English and Polish.

Visitors are welcome at the library.

NEW - Ebooks and audiobooks at the Seafarers' Library

By the end of spring 2020 the Seafarers' Library will be able to offer all seafarers on board Danish flagged ships access to ebooks and audiobooks in English.

Via the app Libby you will be able to download ebooks and audiobooks to your own device and read them offline.

The staff at the library has started choosing books for the library and we would love it if you would write to us with suggestions to books that you would like to read. 

You need to register to be able to download and read our books - a registration form will be published here when ready.

Please contact the library at  if you have some good book suggestions.
