Borrowing, making reservations for items and using the material in the library is free of charge. However, there are fees and charges collected for overdue loans, reservations left unretrieved, replacement of lost library card, inter-library lending service, photocopies and printouts, and some further prices. Lost, damaged, or unreturned material must be compensated.

The maximum amount of unpaid fees and compensation is 10 €. After that, loaning is prohibited.

Library Card

You need a valid library card to borrow any materials from the library collections. The first library card costs you nothing. To receive a library card, a new customer must give their name and address and prove their identity. Guardian’s consent is required from children under 15 years of age. 

If you lose your library card, you get a new one for a fee. Immediately inform the library of the loss, as the owner of the card is responsible for all of the material borrowed with their card. The library card is personal.

Always inform the library about the change of name, address, or email address. You can use the same library card in Savonlinna main library, mobile library and Kerimäki, Punkaharju and Savonranta libraries, and in all Lumme libraries.

Always keep your library card with you.
