Using the TU Delft Library

THUAS students can make use of the TU Delft (Delft University of Technology) Library free of charge; lecturers and staff members pay € 20 per year.  TU Delft will make you a library card on presentation of a valid student ID card and a proof of address. You can learn more by  going to the TU Delft Library website.

Using the National Library (Koninklijke Bibliotheek)

THUAS students get a 50% discount on their Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB) membership , so they pay just € 7.50/year. For Information Services & Management students, the KB card is free. Lecturers/staff members pay € 15/year for a KB membership. To request a card, go to the reception desk at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek  and present your ID, a proof of address and your student ID card.

Using public libraries

A one-year membership for The Hague Public Library costs students € 10.  To obtain this, you will need to present a  valid student ID card, a proof of identity and a recent proof of address on a document such as a bank statement or wage slip. 

For further details, visit The Hague Public Library’s website.

Guest borrowing privileges

The introduction of guest borrowing privileges this year  means that by being a member of your own public library (jeugdpas, basispas, sterpas or vriendenpas), you can borrow from other Dutch public libraries.  Just take your library card and a valid proof of identity to a library other than your own, and a library employee at the reception desk will make a library card for you.
