Borrow and return
Search for the materials you want to borrow in Oria, find it in the library and use our self-service machine to borrow. Use Oria to request books that are not available in the library, and you will be notified when the books are ready to be collected from our pick up shelf in the library.

Order materials that we don’t have access to in Oria, and we will request it from other libraries.

You can return books in the library during our opening hours. Use the reurnbox by the entrance of KE-house to return books when the library is closed.

We are sending out reminders for overdue loans, and from September 1st we will be charging overdue fines.
