Loan period

The loan period for all materials is three weeks, with the exception of a Plus-membership. With this membership you can borrow unlimited materials for as long as you want.

By renewing your items before the due date, you may avoid fines and extend your borrowing time on selected items.

There are several possibilities:
• Log in at Mijn Bibliotheek and choose 'Mijn gegevens en verlengen' (My data and renew)

When you renew the loan period for materials subject to a lending fee, you will have to pay the lending fee again.
