Extensions of time limits for borrowed media

The library account allows you to extend the loan periods of your borrowed media independently. Access is via the library card number (3110... or 0961...) and the corresponding password).

Due to the special situation, media can be extended up to eight times from 19.3. onwards. Please check the current loan period end date after each extension.
