You can also order books from, and return them to, the Östersund Library, Torvalla Library, Lit Library and the Library Bus.

Our library has two computers with word processing and an Internet connection. You’ll need a library card or identification to reserve one. You can also make copies and print from the computers.

We also have the "Biblioteket" wireless network. Here, too, you’ll need your library card number and PIN code to log on.

At our library, you will be able to access the Östersund Library range of databases, which includes Nationalencyklopedin, Alex Författarlexikon, Landguiden and the Global Grant scholarship and grant database. PressReader enables you to read daily newspapers and periodicals from various countries.
