Inside the library in Hveragerði there is an earthquake-rift in the middle of the library. When construction work was started on the foundation of the shopping complex in Sunnumörk in 2004 they came across an earthquake-rift. The construction had to be stopped, but then it was decided to build the library on top of the chasm and cover it with glass and light it up so people could see it and walk on it. It has been a popular attraction for both locals and tourists alike and children love it!
Opening hours: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday: 14-19, Tuesday 14-21 and Saturday from 11-14.
Next to the library is The Tourist Information Center.
Hveragerði is located in the main area where the tectonic plates meet and on the 29th of May 2008 there was an earthquake 6,3 on the Richter scale right under Mt. Ingólfsfjall next to Hveragerði.
