Current information

Construction Work

At the Branch Library Steintor-Campus, new workstations are being set up.


The work is going to take place during opening hours, so there unfortunately are limitations concerning the use of workstations and holdings. The other branch libraries and the reading rooms of the main library are available as alternative workplaces. Inaccessible holdings are going to be available per request by the catalogues and are going to be made available after the daily construction activities are completed.


We apologize for any temporary noise disturbance.
