Information about library opening


From June 2nd, 2020, the workplaces in the reading rooms of our libraries in Hof and Münchberg can be used again in limited numbers. 

For the library in Hof we will soon make an online-system available for you to reserve workplaces in our reading rooms. We kindly ask you to reserve a workplace in advance. Detailed information will follow as soon as the reservation system is available.

Please make sure that you keep a minimum distance of 1.5 – 2 m to other people during your stay in the library. To ensure the protective measures only a limited number of users can enter the library at the same time. 

It is necessary to wear a community mask in the movement areas of the libraries. The mask can be removed at the workplace. Please come to the information desk after entering the library because registration of library visitors is currently required.

The libraries will open at the following times:

Mon-Thu             09.00-17.00
Fri                         09:00-13:00

Tue and Thu      09.00-13.00 

The 24-hour opening of the libraries is not yet possible again.

In Hof the return box was set up in the foyer in front of the library entrance. So books can returned outside the library.
