  • not to bring food or drink (excluding water bottles) into the Library or to smoke in the Library
  • to deposit coats, jackets, bags etc. outside the library - keys for lockers are available for loan at the Library information desk
  • to look after your personal property and keep valuables with you all the time
  • to carry an ID card with you when you visit the library and show it to staff on request
  • to take care of books, journals and other library equipment
  • to return all library items to their proper locations after use
  • not to make any marks on library material
  • not to place open books face downwards or stacked on top of each other in order not to damage the spine
  • to follow staff instructions in connection with these library rules and in case of emergency

Thank you.
