Borrowing books

Anyone who lives/studies/works in Minoh City can borrow books from the City Libraries for free. You can borrow up to 20 books, and must return them within 15 days. When borrowing books, you need a library card.

When using the City Libraries for the first time, please bring something to verify your address, name, and birthdate, such as a driver's license, health insurance card, resident card or special permanent resident certificate.

When a book that you would like to borrow is already out, you can reserve it. You can also reserve a book through the internet. Before using this service, you have to register a password by yourself.

If there is a book you want to read that is not in the City Libraries, you can fill in a request form for the City Libraries to buy it, or to borrow it from a library in another city.

If you bring your library card, you can enoy movies, DVDs, and music CDs free of charge at the City Libraries (except for Onohara Library, Sakuragaoka Library, and the Right-Pia library corner)
