Kiruna stadsbibliotek

Kiruna city library is part of the new culture center Aurora and was inaugurated in September 2022. The library is housed in a corner on the first floor, with large windows looking out over the square outside.

Placed in the middle of the new city center, Aurora is meant to be a meeting place for both local residents and visitors. In addition to the library it hosts a cinema, an art space, conference rooms, a restaurant and a youth house. The old library venue at Biblioteksgatan had to be swiftly evacuated in 2009 due to cracks forming as a result of the adjacent mine. Until 2022 the library was temporarily located in another building in the old city center in Kiruna.
