The Extended-hours Library


What is extended hours libraries?

The libraries at Byåsen, Heimdal, Klæbu, Moholt, Ranheim, Risvollan and Saupstad have extended opening hours. These branches are available for users outside the regular opening hours. The libraries are open from 07:00 to 23:00 every day of the year for users 15 years or older, who have gained access to the extended hours library.

To get access to the library outside normal opening hours, you have to sign a contract.

Signing this contract gives you access to the library from 07:00 to 23:00 hours every day of the year. You have to be 15 years or older. If you are between 15 and 18 years old, a parent have to come with you to the library and co-sign the contract.

The library is a public facility that is to be enjoyed and used by all the city’s inhabitants. You must help to keep the rooms tidy and show consideration for all the other visitors using the library. The extended-hours library is based on a relationship of trust between you and the library. It is therefore important that you comply with the library’s house rules.
