Practical information

Opening Hours

Starting on 8 June, the library will gradually begin to reopen and on-site services will resume. Weekday and weekend opening hours will then be extended on 20 July.

Social-distancing rules will apply. The Library's maximum capacity has been significantly reduced as a result of the 1.5-meter rule. As the Library is likey to get busy during the exam periods, which start on 27 July, priority will be given to the UNIGE/HUG community, and you will be required to show your multiservices card. Wirk boxes will be open for reservation again on July 27.
