Your library card

  • Your library card is valuable - please look after it.
  • You need a PIN code to borrow and renew items and reserve items on the internet.
  • We process your personal data in accordance with applicable legislation. All employees who process the library’s personal data have a duty of confidentiality, and have signed an assurance to confirm that this data will remain confidential.
  • If you no longer want a library card with us, you need to terminate your borrowing agreement. This is most easily done by sending an email to kundtjanst@bibliotekuppsala.se.

Your personal information will remain until you terminate the agreement with Bibliotek Uppsala.

Loan period

  • In most cases, you can borrow books for four weeks.
  • If it is not reserved, you can renew your borrowed item here at bibliotekuppsala.se or by telephoning 018-727 17 00.
  • If you do not return your borrowed item, we will send you a reminder.
  • If you like, we can send you an email or text message to remind you that your item is due to be returned in three days.

If you return an item late

  • It is free to borrow items, but you must pay a library fine if you return the item late.
  • Adults who have library fines of more than 50 kronor must pay these fines before borrowing any new items.
  • If you are aged 18 or below, you do not pay library fines.
