In accordance with the new national infection prevention guidelines the library must facilitate for the new infection prevention measures.

This means that we are reducing our opening hours, and Ullandhaug library will no longer be open 24/7, and Bjergsted library and The Library at the Museum of Archaeology will only be open during staffing hours.

Keep 1 metre distance

The number of available study spaces have been reduced, and some areas are off limits to maintain 1 meter distance. In situations where you are unable to keep at least a 1 meter distance it ist recommended to use a face mask when visiting the library.

To avoid close contact, we only offer quick guidance at the service desk. Classes and guidance will be digital. Contact if you have any questions or need guidance.

Returning books

If you prefer not to 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.
