How to get a library card? (you don't need it e.g. for only visiting or using Wi-Fi)

To get registered you need:

  • in case you are a foreign national living in Germany you'll need an "Aufenthaltsgestattung" or "Aufenthaltstitel" + an official certificate with your adress. 
    NOT: "Duldung" - no library card is possible in these cases!
  • your passport / identity card (and a certificate of the registration office with your actual address on it)
  • a certificate of the authorities, e.g. the job centre or the social security office (and your passport!) in case of you wanting to make use of our reduced fee offer

Children (up to 18 years) need a signature of a person having parental authority on the library card - so it's meaningful that this person and the child appear in company for registration.

Please let us know any change of address immediatly or in case of loss of your library card!

Of course you can visit the library without any registration. May be just to drink a cup of coffee and read a magazine ;)

The library card is not transferable!
