About the Libraries

All the libraries in Horsens are public libraries. This means that the many libraries in Horsens offer free service to everyone.
Horsens' main library is located in the heart of the city. However, the library consists of several other branches, which can be found in the surrounding areas of Horsens. These areas include: Brædstrup, Østbirk, Gedved, Hovedgård, Søvind and Endelave. This means that you have easy access to excellent library services in the region of Horsens.
The libraries have different opening hours, but certain things are the same for all the branches: various fines, rules and regulations. For more information regarding opening hours – 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, in that case you will get a fine.
For adults to be registered at the library you can either follow this link to the registration page (in Danish) or you can show up in person at a information desk on one of our libararies. To register online you will need a nemID. To register in person you will need to show the staff valid ID with a photo or you can bring your nemID.
Persons under the age of 18 need their parents/guardians to go to this page about registering children under 18 and fill it out using their nemID. After filling out the form you will need to go to the library to show ID for the under age person (the regular yellow scial security card).
It is also possible for persons under the age of 18 to show up at the library and fill out a paper form instead. Just remember to bring valid ID.
We can issue a special library card for you – or you can use your national health service medical card (yellow card). You have to choose a personal code (four digits) for your library card. Once registered, you can use the library's many services!
For more information about the rules and regulations at the library – see the green brochure titled: “Welcome to the public library”, visit our page about our rules and regulations, or feel free to ask the library staff.
