Welcome to Stor-Elvdal Public Library! On this page we will bring library news in English.
How to become a user of Stor-Elvdal Bibliotek?
Bring your personal ID to verify your identity at the library. The staff will provide you with a lending card.
Asylum seekers must bring their UDI-cards. These have no personal ID number, so the library cards will only be for use at the local library. If permanent stay is granted as a refugee, you will, like all other permanent residents of Norway, get a personal ID-number. If that IDnumber is added to the library card registration, the card will give access to most public libraries in Norway. In other words, you will then have a national lending card.
Library service is free
Your library card is free of charge, but replacement cards will cost you NOK 10. It is also free to borrow book, audiobooks, dvd’s etc at the library, but there will be a fee to pay if the material is not given back in time. You will get a notice by mail or email to give you a chance to bring bach the material in time. Remember, you can normally also renew the material by using internet self service or by contacting the library.
You can borrow film for 1 week, books and audio books for 4 weeks. The library cardnumber gives you access to internet based services such as:
