Deichman Biblo Tøyen

Oslo, Norway

Libraries are special places where kids can read, learn, and create. Deichman Biblo Tøyen is one of the coolest of them all. This striking library for children ages 10 to 15 was designed to inspire. With many colorful exhibits and surprises, each section offers visitors an interactive experience. For those who have come just to cuddle up with a good book, there are plenty of comfy spots to do so. Grab a seat in a pillow-packed wheelbarrow, a vintage pickup truck, or a repurposed ski lift. Or plop down into a simple chair or cushion. The best part? This library is just for kids—no adults allowed! —Allison Singer
