The Heby Municipal Library has branches in Heby, Östervåla and Tärnsjö. We have three addresses, but together these make up a single library. We thus share personnel, policies and our books and media collection. You can use the library card you receive from us at all of our addresses.
The library card is valid throughout our municipality and is issued free of charge. The card is personal and you are responsible for everything borrowed on the card. Please inform us of any change of name, address or telephone number. If you do not return the items you borrowed and/or pay any fines owed, you risk having your card suspended.
Lending periods and extensions
The normal lending period is 28 days. If there is there is a waiting list for the material, the lending period will be 14 days. You may get an extension of your lending period. This applies if there is no waiting list for the material.
At our library, you will find literature in various languages, periodicals, daily newspapers, audio books, large-print books, and easy-to-read books. We also offer digital material and various online services (e-tjänster). You can also use our public computers. At the Heby Library, you are required to reserve a computer if there is a member of staff present. You reserve the computer at the counter.
