Crown Princess Mette-Marit is back to royal engagements after tough time. Her Royal Highness visited the new building of Oslo Public Library (officially called in Norwegian Deichmanske bibliotek, Deichman Library) in Bjoervika, a neighborhood in the Sentrum borough of Oslo, Norway on January 16, 2020.
The new the Deichman Library is scheduled to officially open to the public on March 8 of this year.
The Crown Princess has taken on the role of ambassador for Norwegian literature in the international arena.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore Brock Collection Carine Jacket in Floral Jacquard.
During her visit, The Crown Princess greeted 850 children from Oslo’s Schools who carried around 6,000 children’s books from the old Deichman Library in Hammersborg to the new building in Bjørvika.
In 2011 the building of the old Deichman Library in Hammersborg was damaged in the bombing of the government quarter. Part of the entrance had to be demolished and all departments in the building were closed to the public for two months after the explosion.
Oslo Public Library is named after Carl Deichman (1705 – 21 April 1780) a Norwegian businessman, mine operator, book collector and philanthropist. At the time of his death, his personal collection of over 6,000 books and an additional endowment formed the initial basis for the Oslo Public Library.
The new modern and dynamic library contains not only Deichman’s extensive book collections, but also a movie theatre, media workshops, gaming zones, lounges and a restaurant – among other things.
