In addition:

  • If you have materials on reserve, they will continue to be reserved for you after the shutdown period
  • If you have borrowed material, then your loans will be extended and you will not receive recalls / fines during the shutdown period
  • If you have reservations for material, these are maintained during the shutdown period

You will continue to be able to access the electronic materials the library has subscriptions for throughout the shutdown period.

We cancel all events and exhibitions until April 14th 2020.

Tickets bought online will be refunded directly from our ticket provider Billetlugen (excluding fees).

Vouchers for 'Stranger Than Kindness: The Nick Cave Exhibition' are still valid. A new opening date will be announced as soon as the shutdown of the library has been lifted.

If your ticket for one of our exhibitions is valid during the shutdown, you can exchange it for a different date, once we know when we can open the library again.
