Utrecht Library members enjoy access to a treasure trove of books, e-books, audio books, CDs, DVDs and magazines. All at an attractive price. And as a member you can also take advantage of all kinds of benefits and discounts, not only at the Library, but elsewhere too! Which membership is best for you?

Standard membership

Standard membership is valid for one year and allows you to borrow anything, including e-books, without limit.

Flex membership

Flex membership has all the advantages of Standard membership, plus it’s flexible! You pay every 3 months, instead of once a year. Flex membership requires payment by direct debit.

Light membership

You get 20 credits: one credit is valid to borrow or renew one item. Unused credits expire after one year. You can also borrow 6 e-books a year.


You can download an e-book onto your device for 21 days. After 21 days it will no longer open. E-books cannot be renewed at present, but it is possible to borrow them again.

Register online

You can register online (except Standard and Light Digital memberships) or at the Library. Be sure to bring a valid passport, ID or driving license on your first visit. Membership is for one year (except Flex membership) and is extended automatically. 

As a member you are entitled to…

  • Borrow up to 10 items simultaneously for 3 weeks each. Sprinters are available for 1 week.
  • Renew borrowed items twice (unless reserved).
  • Borrow and return at any public library in Utrecht province, except Nieuwegein.
  • Take online courses free.
  • 50% discount on printing and photocopying charges.
