The Library Rules constitute an important document, which stipulates the relationship between the library and the people using its services. The amendment to the Library Rules shall come into effect on 25 May 2018 and shall bring about certain changes we would like to familiarise you with.
Handling personal data
Personal data protection is a very important issue for the library, which we
devote continuous attention to. This is why a separate part of the Library
Rules, specifically Chapter 7, is devoted to this issue. The
changes are based primarily on the requirements for the compliance of practice
with the new European regulation on personal protection (GDPR, hereinafter
the Regulation). Given the obligations arising from the Regulation, we are
obliged to limit certain services on the English version of the library’s
website, in particular access to the English version of the online reader
account. We apologise for the inconvenience and trust that we shall be able to
restore the service by launching a new version of our website.
All the data may be updated during a personal visit to the library;
you shall need your identification (ID card or passport) to do so.
More information about how the library handles data and what it uses them for
is available in the separate
Seniors over 70 years of age for free
The library registration fee is charged during first registration and when
renewing the reader’s card validity, and is equal to CZK 60 per year. An
exception applies to children under 15 years of age and holders of ZTP and
ZTP-P passes. Seniors over the age of 70 shall now be able to
register / extend their registration to the library without a fee.
Persons over the age of 75 can also use the book delivery service, offered
by the library branches in Břevnov, Opatov and Smíchov.
Changes in the pricelist
The pricelist forms an annex to the Library Rules. The price for notification
of reservation of sending of a reminder via physical mail is newly increased to
CZK 25 (CZK 19 postage + CZK 6 overhead
costs). Notification of reservation fulfilment via e-mail is free of
charge. The price for reservation (identification, potential transport and
preparation of the book for pickup) is CZK 10.
