Library card

If you wish to borrow any books, you will require a library card, which you can apply for by presenting personal ID to staff at our lending desk.

Requirements for issuing a library card

  • Minimum age 16 years
  • Resident in Germany
  • Presentation of valid personal ID or passport


  • Users can only borrow books for home use upon presentation of their library card.
  • As a rule, no more than 20 items (books) can be borrowed at a time.
  • Books are generally loaned for a period of one month. Loans can be renewed twice, for one further month in each case, as long as no-one else has reserved the book.
