We're open again

Starting on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, we reopen the library following the government restrictions concerning the measures against the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Our library branches in Bookholzberg and Schierbrok remain closed until further notice.

That means you can now enter the library again and borrow books and other media in person.

For information about all rules and regulations you need to know before your visit, please mind the links below.

We look forward to your visit!
