During the summer there will be reduced opening- and staffing hours at the library. Read more about our opening hours here.

We encourage all visitors to be considerate to each other and our staff and to follow infection prevention guidelines. North Jæren recomends that you use a face mask if you are unable to keep a distance of 1 meter to anyone that is not part of your household.

You no longer have to book a study space to use the library. All study spaces and work areas that are not cordoned off can be used by visitors to the library.

If you prefer to not visit the library, you can return books in our return box. At Ullandhaug you can find the return box by the entrance to Kjølv Egeland House, closest to the library. At the library in Bjergsted the return box is located by the entrance to the library.

Remember:

  • Don’t visit the library if you are sick or have corona like symptoms.
  • Use a face mask if you are unable to keep a distance of 1 meter to anyone that is not part of your household.
  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly.
  • Only use available areas. Respect signs and do not use areas that are off limits.
  • Use available sanitizer to disinfect your workspace before use.
  • Clean your study space after use.
  • Always follow the local and national infection prevention guidelines.
