The NW Danish Association has a new online library catalog! Volunteers have been hard at work over the last few years to get their library cataloged and organized online. The library contains over 2,000 books! The collection includes both books in Danish and books in English on topics pertaining to Denmark.

 

Take a look at their collection here.
