After you have completed the online form, you need to present your passport, registration confirmation from the city of Fulda and a visa that is valid for at least three months to the library receptionist. The library service will then issue your library card.

The library card entitles you to borrow books and use lockers. Books may be loaned for four weeks but you can renew the loan period three times (unless the books have been reserved by another user).
