Net income per citizen amounts to approximately 680 DKR per year. Every Roskilde citizen visits the library more than 8 times a year, and borrows more than 18 issues on average.

Rules for the use of Roskilde Libraries Everybody can use the Roskilde Libraries, and borrowing is free of charge. You only need your health insurance card to borrow. The first time however, we register you as borrower in our data base. Children can be issued a library card, upon showing their health insurance card. IMPORTANT: You are liable for any materials borrowed on your card. Therefore, if you lose your library or health insurance card, please inform the library without further delay. Foreign nationals can obtain a library card upon presenting their passport or similar documentation. When the application is being made, the library registers the name, address and cpr number. The library card is personal (nontransferable) and must be brought along each time you wish to borrow material. The owner of the library card is liable for the use of the 18

library card and is responsible for the materials borrowed on the library card. If the library card is lost, the library must be informed straight away in order to prevent misuse. The library must be notified of any change of address. The library is entitled to demand that a pin code is used when using the library card. Loan Period The loan period is usually 31 days. Some books, games or CD’s may have a shorter loan period. When you borrow, you receive a receipt. The receipt states, when the borrowed material is to be returned. If the return date is not observed, we charge a fee, according to how late you return the materials. You only pay one fee for all the materials borrowed on the same date, if you return them all at once. In case you have borrowed materials on different dates, a fee must be paid for each loan

date, despite the fact that they are returned at once. This also applies, in case you renewed on the same day. Damages of materials You must replace borrowed materials, if they are lost or damaged. In case you return the materials later on, and can document a receipt for damages paid, we shall reimburse you within a year. You may have to pay for all volumes in a set, even though only one volume is missing, because the libraries may not have the option of buying one volume only of the set. Damages for lost or broken DVD’s, CD’s, Playstation and Gameboy games are higher than the retail price. Rights to lend out these materials have to be bought, therefore the libraries pay much more than ordinary retail prices. Unpaid bills are passed on to debt collection, and consequent addi18


tional costs are added to the bill. The Roskilde Libraries accepts no responsibility for damages caused to your equipment (f. inst. CD or DVD player), despite the fact that damage was caused by our materials. Return of materials in the libraries’ mail boxes is your own responsibility. The library card is personal, so a power of attorney is required, if you pick up materials for others. Copyright A few materials (f. inst. DVD movies) may only be used according to the terms and conditions listed on the cover and cassette. Further informa-

tion can be obtained at the libraries. Rules and regulations in full can also be obtained at the libraries, or be read at the homepage. The Roskilde Libraries are closed on holidays, Easter Saturday, Constitution Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve Day. May 1st the libraries close at 12:00. Opening hours may vary at the local libraries. Phone 46 31 50 00 or look it up at our home page www.roskildebib.dk

Kindly respect that the libraries are smoke free.
