After registering, you will receive a Reader's Card, which allows access to all Library services.

It is not permitted to enter the NLL reading rooms with bags and outdoor clothes. These items should be left in lockers or wardrobe on the Level 1. Lockers for storing belongings are operating by leaving a 1 EUR coin deposit, which is returned after the end of locker use. Personal items (stationery, laptop, cell phone, wallet, etc.) the reader wishes to take to reading rooms can be put in specially designed NLL bags or bags that are available at the wardrobe and reception.

Library materials are handed out for use only on the spot in the NLL reading rooms.
