A user card can be bought after presenting an identity card at the counter. The card authorizes the owner to a free loan of books and medias. An online registration is possible as well. The borrowing regulations are documented in the conditions of use and fees of the Cantonal Library Vadiana.

Renew borrowing periods
With the exception of DVDs, books and media can be borrowed for 28 days. At the end of the loan period, the book or media is renewed automatically two times for another 28 days, unless there is a request from another member. You may then renew the loan period manually three times more online. After log on to your “Benutzungskonto” (account), you see a list of your loans, due date inclusively. By clicking on the underlined number, you can expand the loan period of each title manually or by clicking on “Alle verlängern” (renew all) you can automatically renew all periods.
