Royal Danish Library (Danish: Det Kgl. Bibliotek) is a merger of the two previous national libraries in Denmark: the State and University Library in Aarhus and the Royal Library in Copenhagen. Although now under a single organisation, the separate locations in both cities are maintained.

The merger came into effect on January 1, 2017.[1]
