Eyrarbakki Historical

The Women's Book Room celebrates Icelandic female authors. Rannveig Anna Jónsdóttir conceived this small nonprofit entity after realizing that many books written by Icelandic women were out of print, obscure, or difficult to obtain. More than 3,000 books written by some 600 authors are now on display in two rooms of the historical Blátún building at Eyrarbakki. It shares the building with the local public library, which is housed on the second floor.
