In return for the services our Library provides, readers are expected to respect the rights of others and the integrity of Library resources. We ask you

  • to be considerate to other Library users and respect their rights to work quietly
  • to ensure your mobile phone is in silent mode or switched off when you enter the Library and not to make or accept phone calls in the Library
  • not to bring food or drink 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

Our library's code of conduct for library users is based on the Regulations of the Libraries.
