Important questions and answers about borrowing, renewing and returning media
How can I keep track of the return date?
Already at the time of borrowing you will receive an account printout on which the latest return date is noted. You can view the current status of all borrowed media at any time via the account function of our online catalog "My Account".
If you leave your e-mail address at the public library, you will receive a free e-mail reminder a few days before the loan period expires. If you would like to use the service, you can contact the Rastatt City Library team directly.
Can I keep media longer?
You can renew all media twice free of charge, as long as they are not preregistered. The only exception: Kamishibai picture cards cannot be renewed.
What can I do if the desired medium is on loan?
Search for the desired title in the media catalog. In the short title list there is the option "reserve" for borrowed titles. Please enter your ID number and password.
When the title has arrived, you will be notified by e-mail or in writing. This service costs 1 Euro per title.
Can I wish for media to be purchased new?
You can suggest a title to the city library for a new acquisition. To do this, simply fill out the form for a media request online or also in the city library.
Proposed titles should not be older than two years and no more expensive than 30 euros. In addition, they must have already been published. The City Library will review all suggestions and inform you in a timely manner whether the medium will be purchased.
