This features some interesting pictures about the public library in Hjorring, Denmark. According to the link (click title) "It is part of a civic center that includes a gym, restaurant and library."
The space looks like a lot of fun. But we don't really see much "merchandising" of adult materials, and I'd sure like to know what goes on behind the scenes. Nonetheless, it appears that Denmark is one of the serious competitors to North American libraries.
