The library in Horsens is the main library – and then there are several branches reaching out in Brædstrup, Østbirk, Gedved, Hovedgård, Søvind and Endelave. In other words, you have easy access to excellent library services in many areas of the municipality.

The libraries have different opening hours, but certain things are the same for all the branches: various fines, rules and regulations. For opening hours – both with staff and self-service – see here.

How to become a registered library user
First and foremost – everybody can borrow from the libraries. It is FREE – unless you hand in your loans late, which will generate a fine.

To be registered as a library user, you have to show up in person at one of our library branches. Ask one of our staff members to register you. You need to show a valid identity card with your CPR-number. For adults (age 18+), it is also required that you show a valid ID with a photo or you can bring your NemID.

We have a wide selection of books, movies and music.

We can issue a special library card for you – or you can use your health insurance card (yellow card). You have to choose a personal code (four digits) for your library card.
You can start using the library services immediately after registering!

For more information about the Rules and regulations at the library – see the red brochure entitled: “Welcome to the public library”, visit this site, or feel free to ask the library staff.
