The new public library, Deichman Bjørvika, is now open for the public of Oslo and visitors to the Norwegian Capital. The original plan was to open the library on March 28, yet due to the COVID-19 and the lockdown worldwide, the opening ceremony was rescheduled to June 18. The opening ceremony was a closed event with 200 guests but was live-streamed on Deichman Bjørvika’s Facebook page. Among the guests were H.R.H Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, the Mayor of Oslo and the Governing Mayor of Oslo.
The ambition of the library is to host over 2 million visitors each year, but due to the COVID-19, only 1000 people are allowed at the library at the same time. The Library stretches over six floors and with more than 450,000 books, the library needed a sorting system to fit these needs. The Sort Mate™ 2000 is the latest generation in the successful series of dedicated library sorters installed in hundreds of locations across the World. High speed and precise sorting enabled by robust and stable Lyngsoe software and hardware. Sorting correctly minimizes the need for staff to handle items.
