In the interests of protecting library users and staff, Düsseldorf Libraries are committed to delaying the spread of Coronavirus. Düsseldorf Central Library and all our branch libraries will therefore be closed to the public from Saturday 14th March 2020.
All books and media currently on loan will be renewed automatically so that no overdue fines will be incurred.
All of our digital library collections and streaming services will continue to be available in our onlineBibliothek.
All library tours, training courses and events are cancelled. This precautionary measure is initially planned until 19.04.2020.
A telephone service (0211-8994399) is available from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 2pm. Or via e-mail: email@example.com
What happens with items that I currently have on loan?
Items on loan will be renewed automatically until they can be returned again. You do not need to do anything further. Please do not send items to us by post.
Do I have to pay overdue fines?
No, overdue fines will not be incurred during the closed period. Any previously outstanding fines will need to be paid once our libraries have reopened.
What happens with my reservations or orders?
Reservations will remain active. Ordered items ready for collection will be held for you for two weeks following our reopening.
Can I place a reservation during the closed period?
Reservations of books and media will not be possible during the closed period. The Onleihe digital library will remain available for eBooks and electronic media.
My Library card has expired. What can I do?
Unfortunately, the library card can only be renewed once we have reopened. If you have any questions relating to library cards, please contact us directly.
Can I access items that I ordered through interlibrary loan?
No. Interlibrary loans will be suspended during the closed period.
