Current information

We will reopen both libraries step by step.

For university members, the shelf areas in the libraries are accessible so that media can be searched out independently.

Collection of ordered media is still possible by prior appointment (also for guest users).

We continue to offer mail delivery to users who live outside the city of Hof or who belong to a risk group.
Please send us your order (for pick-up or shipping) by email with the following information: title, shelfmark (e.g. 100/QP 530 H979), usernumber and curring mailing address (in Germany).
