Registration to get a library card

If you do not have a library card of the Berlin Public Libraries or the ZLB yet, you have to register.

Adults need a valid identity card or passport and the certificate of registration (which you get at the Bürgeramt). To get a discount you need e.g. student ID, berlinpass or a certificate of Jobcenter or Sozialamt. A registration form is not required.

Children and adolescents up to age of 18 need the signature of their parents or legal guardians on the registration form. If possible the parents or legal guardians should show up personally with the documents needed. However, it is also possible to give copies of the documents to the children to take with them.

Employees of an institution or school, kindergarten, crèche (day nursery) etc. please have the registration form stamped and signed by your institution or employer.

The library card, which is valid for one year from the date of filing, is accepted at all institutions of the Association of Public Libraries in Berlin (VÖBB).

If you have lost your library card, please contact your library immediately to prevent misuse.

With the help of the PDF files listed below (in German), you can print out the registration form and fill it out ahead.
