Library memberschip

Membership | Becoming a member

To borrow books, you need to be a member of the library. There are two types of membership:

Basic membership: If you occasionally want to borrow books, you will pay a one-off registration fee of €7,50 and then €1 for each book borrowed for a period of 4 weeks.
Annual membership: If you regularly want to borrow or renew books, you will pay €25 each year with no additional charge for either borrowing or renewing. With your annual membership, you will also be able to access a number of external collections at home.

To become a member of Atria’s library, you must first present valid identification (ID) and foreigners need to show an address confirmation.
