    COVID certificate will be required

    From 13 September 2021, according to the Federal Council resolution, the "certificate requirement" will also apply in libraries. We therefore ask you to show us the barcode of your Covid certificate and an official ID when you visit us.

    The certificate requirement applies to persons aged 16 and over. There is no mask requirement in the library for people with a valid certificate. Masks are still required for people aged 12 to 15.

    Readers without a certificate can still borrow books via the online catalog, we will be happy to deliver the books by post.

    Thank you for understanding.
