    Information related to registration

    At registration we  enter into a library user agreement with our readers. Identifying documents necessary for this are accepted only in their original forms  (identity card, driving license, passport, address card). Enrollment can be made in person, we cannot accept pre-printed and filled out copies of the library patron's and surety statements, which are listed on the website and in Terms of Use as sample documents.

    Information about discounts on registration can be found here.
    Children's library card (up to the age of 10) can be used only for borrowing children’s books; so, we ask parents to enroll if they want to borrow books to themselves.

    Reader’s card cannot be assigned to others.
    Librarians, employees of museums and archives are entitled to be exempted from the payment of registration and administration fee; certificate of employment is needed to be verified.
