Apply for interlibrary loan


Published information is provided by municipal public libraries. They are part of the education system and serve educational, vocational, general and cultural education. They teach media and information literacy and support the promotion of reading among children and young people in a special way. In addition to the provision of foreign-language literature, intercultural events (e.g. readings) also take place. Various offers are available such as books, newspapers/magazines, sheet music, maps, audio books, CDs, DVDs, CD-ROM, Blus-Ray discs and online media. In the event that the various offers are not in the library on site, you can use the interlibrary loan in many cases.

A user card is required to use the existing offers.

You are in possession of a valid user card of a public library.

With your user card you can use media

  • borrow and take home,
  • use the eLibrary,
  • Read media on site in the library and
  • have access to various databases including electronic newspapers/magazines.
  • For the issuance of the user card, the presentation of the identity card or passport with current registration certificate is required.
  • Children and adolescents up to the age of 18 require the declaration of consent of the legal representative.

The cost of use varies from library to library. Additional services (copies, reproduction orders, document delivery, use of the image archive, access to the Internet) may incur additional costs, the amount of which is specified in the fee schedule of the respective library.

The loan periods for certain forms of media specified in the library's terms of use must be observed by the user.
