All use of the library is free, except photocopies and printouts (NKR 2,- per sheet of paper). To borrow books and other materials you’ll have to be a registrered user and have a library card. You’ll need to bring an ID-card with photo for the registration. This registration gives you free access to all the libraries in Hallingdal; Gol, Geilo, Ål, Hemsedal, Nesbyen and Flå. If you should loose or damage your library card, a new card will be issued for a fee of NKR 30,-.
Books, music and magazines can be borrowed for 4 weeks, DVD’s for 1 week. If the material is not returned on time, the first reminder will cost NKR 20,-. Second reminder is NKR 40,- and the third is NKR 60,-. With the third reminder there is also a claim for compensation. If the material is returned to the library this claim will be withdrawn, and there will be just the NKR 60,- penalty to pay.
