The public libraries in Lund consist of the City Library and nine district libraries. Here you will find books, magazines, lectures and other events for all ages and areas of interest. Several of our libraries have Meröppet, which means that you can visit the library even when it is not staffed. Welcome!
Changes in the library to reduce the spread of infection
Due to the Swedish Public Health Agency's stricter general advice, Lund Municipality is taking measures to counteract the spread of infection. The libraries are open, but only for lending and returning books. Reading and study places are removed and the public is encouraged to keep their library visits short. At the same time, libraries offer more lending of e-books and films digitally, and up to 10 re-loans have already been introduced.
Program activities at the libraries only take place digitally, without a physical audience. Meröppet is offered as before for some libraries.
Lund Municipality's adjustments apply from 29 October to 17 November, but may be extended.
One of Lund’s nicknames is Lund – the reading city. A nickname with its roots in the fair amount of libraries Lund has to offer as well as publishing houses and writers that settled here over the centuries.
There are plenty of public libraries around the city at your service. The University library is always worth a visit even if you are not a student.
The libraries offer books, newspapers, language courses, music and films, e-books to download, audiobooks and more. All libraries have computers with internet connection for you to use, too. A library card is free of charge and borrowing books at the library is free, too. Fees apply however if you foret tu return the book in time.
Visit the libraries
