frequently asked questions
Why are you closing?
The library is switching to Wise. Transferring all of the data from our previous software to Wise involves a significant amount of work. And we also need time to get used to the new software. Which is why the library is closing for a few days.
What about my borrowed books?
Good news! Those with titles to return during the closure period can hold onto them for a little longer. We’ll automatically extend your loan period, so that you don’t get any fines during this exceptional closing period.
Can I return titles to the (outdoor) return station, located on the side of the Muntpunt building?
No, unfortunately not. But don’t worry. Your loan period will automatically be extended and you won't be fined during this exceptional period of closure.
I’ve run out of reading material. What now?
Well, we certainly can't have that!
You can stock up on new, affordably priced reading material during the library’s closure at our book sale (20, 21 and 22 September).
Or discover our e-books, online films, digital newspapers and more in the E-library. And for children, there’s the Online Kids Library: a world brimming with read, watch, listen, play and do tips. Enjoy the Kids Library from the comfort of your own home!
