The Bookmobile drives according to the schedule.

How do I reserve and pick up material.

It's simple! You find the book you want to read, the music you want to listen to, the magazines, sheet music or movie of your choice and make a reservation online. See further instructions. We encourage users to use the webpage to make reservations, but you're welcome to call 411 6100 if you need help.

  • If the material is available, we will contact you by e-mail or telephone when it's ready for delivery.

  • If the material is available, but not at the library of your choice, we will deliver it there and inform you when it's ready to be picked up.
  • If the material is not available, we will put you on a waiting list and let you know as soon as it's available and ready at the library of your choice.


Can I return material and pay debts? 

If you want to pay old debts you can do so on the library webpage. You simply sign in with your kennitala or library card number, or through island.is. Then you press your name at the top of the page, and in the list that appears you will find My debts, where you can pay your debts.

Can I use the E-Library?

If you have a valid library card you can sign into rafbokasafnid.is with your library card number and PIN number. 

If you don't know your library card number you can find it by signing in here, at borgarbokasafnid.is, open My account and Mínar stillingar. There you can see Library card barcode. 

If you don't remember your PIN you can make a new one. You start by signing in at the web by choosing "Sign in with island.is", enter My account and Mínar stillingar, and there you can change your PIN easily, without knowing your old PIN. 

And if you don't have a library card or need to renew it, you can also do so online. You simply sign in at the library, press My account and you will be guided to a page where you can purchase a card. 

If any question arises, please contact us via phone: 411 6100  or Facebook Messenger.

We're at your service!
