Room for Children is a Swedish library and arts studio for children aged 0-10 years designed to stimulate their desire for books, music, storytelling and self-expression. A child's perspective is applied throughout, from the greeting to the interior design and the way books are placed and displayed.

Adults and children are encouraged to engage in things together in order to share the experience. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a cornerstone of the space; it refers to the right of children to participate fully in cultural life, to express themselves freely and to do so together with others. Room for Children pushes the boundaries of what a library can be.
