Going on holiday? Take your Library with you!

With a holiday loan, you can borrow books at closing hours before holidays, and you may bring special collections which are not allowed to borrow at regular periods. But remember, you must return the book exactly in the morning (09.00 WIB) after the holidays end, or you have to pay some fine. You can ask for more detail about holiday loans and the fines with our librarians.

Some collections you can borrow for holiday loans are Closed Reserve collection, and Dutch collections.
