Library

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!

Folkbiblioteken

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

Welcome to visit one of our ten libraries. Five of the libraries are "Meröppna", which means that you can use the library card to visit the libraries even when they are not staffed.
