The adventures of Kurt, Sarah, Ethan, Reid & Leah


I picked the boys up from school Monday and we walked over to a branch of the Oslo library we have yet to visit in a hip area known as Grünerløkka. We all loved this place — the boys even admitting it was well worth the ‘long’ walk with their heavy school backpacks to get there. Ethan came home with a Mickey Mouse anthology and Reid one of the Bone series books by Jeff Smith that he had not yet read. I can sense that we are going to become regulars here.

In the Oslo Public Library, Grünerløkka branch at Schous space 10, is Oslo’s cartoon library – Serieteket. We are a resource center for cartoon environment, libraries, schools, and general comic book enthusiasts. On the second floor of the branch is a rich collection of both Norwegian and foreign cartoons, and literature on the subject cartoons, which you can borrow. We also arrange cartoon courses, exhibitions, launches, etc.

I picked up the wonderful ‘Little Lit’ series books for the boys

Kurt and I have noticed there seems to be a love affair with Donald Duck comics over here.

Oslo’s own Kristian Hammerstad prints hang outside the entrance
