Conditions and related rules of using the services of the library
The main condition of visiting and using the library’s services is to registrate user data. Lending books is possible only for enrolled users.
The prerequisite of enrollment is that the person who wishes to use the library’s services has to confirm his/her identity by an official document (ID Card, passport or Student Card under 14) or if this person doesn’t have income he/she would have to give data of a guarantor.
The following data are needed:

Place and date of birth
Address: city/village, street, number, floor, door no. ( in case of having a temporary address, mark mailing address)
ID Card’s or passport’s number
Our library asks for the following data but giving them is not compulsary:
Job, workplace. In case of self-employment: headquarter, site
People without incomes (for example students) name the educational institute as workplace
If someone is a housewife (etc.), the situation needs to be written down at the ’workplace’ line
The reader has to pay fee, for which the service can be used for one year.
2. Enrollment data
The library keeps the enrollment data in its integrated computer system. The data that have to be added can be found at the 1th paragraph. The only thing we add to the given data is a barcode. The library will use the data for keeping in touch with the reader or in case of delay they will use them to start the implementation procedure.
Master page, readers notice
The data need to be written down on the master page of the reader. It also contains a statement in which the reader accepts the terms and conditions of the library rules and the document usage rules. The reader has to notify the library about data changes and accepts the way of the library’s record handling
Readers with income take financial responsibility for borrowed documents. The gurantor has to assume this obligation for those who have no income.
The library card contains the enrolled or registrated reader’s name and barcode. It also contains the date of the latest enrollment (it’s signed by a librarian) and every time a reader lend a document, it’s type (book, magazine, audio casette, CD etc.), expiration date and the number of pieces are written down inside. Every reader has to show their library card off when they visit the library or use any of the services.
The library regularly checks the library card’s expiration day.
Lost library card can be replaced after replacement fee is paid.
Library card can be used only by it’s owner. Other people can use the card only if it’s about bringing back a document.
The statement has to contain the name, data and prime number of the guarantor, it must be signed by him/her.
