Renewals & Holds

How to renew your membership:

 

You will be asked to renew your library card once a year to make sure we have up-to-date contact information.To renew your card, you need to show name and address identification to a staff member and pay a membership fee of Naf 25,-. However if you are no longer in possession of your library card, you are also required to bring a recent passport sized picture and a replacement fee of Naf 5,- is charged. If at a later date you find your old card, you can't resume using it.

 

How to renew library materials:


If you wish to renew the library materials you have at home, please take note of the following. In order to renew materials, you need your "User ID" which is the same as the barcode on your library-card and you need a "PIN-code" of your own choosing. The first time you visit our online catalogue, your PIN-code is either 'changeme' or it is the pin you received upon registration. This pin can be changed to a pin you can easily remember.

 

    • To change your PIN please take the following steps:

       

      1. Go to our online catalogue and click on 'My Account'
      2. Click on 'User PIN Change'
      3. Type the 14 digits of the barcode of your library-card in the barcode box
      4. Type 'changeme' or the pin you received from our staff in the PIN box
      5. Type the PIN you want to use (max 10 characters) in the “Enter New PIN” box
      6. Type the same PIN in the Re-enter New PIN box
