Seats in library can be booked by using a booking tool in the THIApp.

If you want to make sure to get a seat, you should definitely use the booking system. Of course, you can also access the library without a reservation for borrowing books at any time.

For each of the next seven opening days you can reserve a seat for one of three time intervals using the THIApp under the menu item "Library":

  • 8 am - 12 am
  • 12 am - 4 pm
  • 4 pm - 8 pm

You can make a maximum of five bookings for the next seven opening days. You can choose between seats in the South Reading Room, North Reading Room and Gallery Reading Room. Booking of two consecutive slots is possible.

The assigned seat number can be found on the tables, as well as on the posted floor plans.

Should there be any malfunctions with the booking tool, please write an email with its description to Please also specify your operating system (version) and the error that has occurred.
