eBook Circulation

In cooperation with the U.S. Embassy, we present our readers the new eLibrary lending service. As a library card holder, you can simply contact us at the library, by mail or by phone, and we will activate your access to the eBook portal free of charge.

In the eLibrary portal you can search for new books, get inspired and of course borrow eBooks from the comfort of your home.

How to use our eLibrary

  1. Make sure that your library card is valid and that the CSH library has your date of birth. Feel free to stop by, email, or call.
  2. Click the blue eBooks button below.
  3. Sign in to your account to borrow titles.

    • The "Card Number" is your library card number. If your library card number starts with zero, please leave it off, e.g. "012345" would be entered so: 12345
    • The PIN is your date of birth (DDMMYYYY) without any punctuation at all

  4. Browse fiction, non-fiction, and audiobooks.
  5. Check out up to six titles at a time.
  6. Read eBooks on your browser (computer, table, notebook), or download titles directly to your eReader (e.g. Kindle). Audiobooks can be downloaded to a computer or mp3 player.
