Self-Service Library

What does it mean, when the library is open for self-service and how does it work?

What is the Open Library Initiative? It is a service that offers extended hours with self-service at the libraries to residents  in Brønderslev, Dronninglund, and Hjallerup.

How do I get in? To access the library outside of staffed hours, you need to be registered as a library patron. If you are not registered, you can sign up here.

You scan your health card (health insurance card) or your library card to open the doors. The first time you do this, you must enter your PIN and finish with #.

NOTE: You must be at least 16 years old to access the library during self-service hours.

What can I do? If you are registered as a patron and have a PIN, you can do almost everything you are used to. You can use the self-service machines for returns and loans, and reserved materials can be found as usual on the reservation shelf behind the staff counters.

What if I have a question? Information boards and guides are set up around the library. If you need further assistance, visit the library during staffed hours or send us an email containing your enquiry at 

What security measures are in place? There are video cameras throughout the library to reduce the risk of vandalism and theft. Additionally, you will be logged in the system when you use your card to open the doors.

Can I print and make copies? Yes, you can. Find further instructions on print, scan and copy services here.
