Borrowing from the library

Borrowed books without queue will automatically be renewed, a maximum of 25 times, as long as there is no reservation on the book. You can also renew the books yourself. The fine rate is 10 SEK per book per day for all library materials. All fines and fees are to be handled via “My pages”, the library bank account, or in the Frescati Library information desk.
