Lending rules

Who can borrow?
Everybody with a permanent address in Norway can borrow books, audio books and language courses. Everybody with a permanent address in Haram or som permanent connection here can borrow music, films and CD ROMS.
Exceptions are made for people staying in Haram for more a few days.
You must be 7 years or older to be issued with a lending card. This gives you the right to borrow from the library. At the same time you commit yourself to the library’s rules.
Some films have an older age limit.
Anyone may use the facilities in the library.
Lending rules for institutions are much the same as those for individuals.

What can I borrow?
The library attemps to offer something to satisfy all needs. If you have special requirements there is a well developed inter library lending scheme within Norway.

Generally the library can provide you with:
- Fiction and non-fiction for all ages. The library tries to keep an up to date selection of subject material. We give priority to quality and topical fiction. Paperbacks are not normally bought.
- Audio books for all ages.
- A limited selection of music for all ages in all categories. Most of our music in on compact discs.
- A limited selection of video films for alle ages. Most categories are covered and priority is given to films of quality and originality from different periods.
- Periodicals may also be borrowed, with the exception of the most recent.


How much can I borrow and for how long?
The library has these borrowing times:
Books, audio books, periodicals - 4 weeks
Language courses - 8 weeks
Music and CD-ROMs - 2 weeks
Films - 1 week

Each item is stamped with the date due.
You may renew the borrowing time, by phone for example, as long as the document in question is not reserved for someone else. Music, films and CD-ROMs cannot be renewed if they are already overdue.
There is no limit to how much you can be borrow, but don’t get carried away! It is rather a question of how much you need in relation to the borrowing time and in consideration to other borrowers which regulates the quantity.


What are my commitments?
To take good care of borrowed material, to let us know in case of faults and to contribute to good circulation of material by returning it in time.

What does it cost?
Borrowing is free. However if borrowing times are neglected expenses may occur. For films, music and CD-ROMs you have to leave a deposit of 50, 20 and 50 kroner respectively. You lose the deposit for each item overdue.

Overdue fines
If necessary the library can demand a fine for having to recall overdue material:
1st overdue notice: kr. 0
2nd overdue notice kr. 10 per item
3rd overdue notice kr. 20 per item
The first overdue notice is an approach to the borrower to clarify the matter and to see if some mistake has been made.
If the borrower does not reply after 3 notices a bill will be sent to replace the item. In cases of replacement a standard charge is normally made. For a non-fiction book for adults 250 kroner is charged for example, regardless of the actual cost or whether it is irreplaceable or not. You should be aware that an encyclopedia volume or a bound annual can be very expensive for a borrower.


Services

The library has some 300 books and audio books in English. A majority of these are novels, both unabridged and abridged with explanatory notes for learners of English. The library also resorts to English to cover certain topics such as travel, sport and hobbies.
Our inter library lending scheme provides access to a large selection of fiction and non-fiction in English. Not least study material is available in this way from university libraries. 84% of such requests are available within 3 to 8 days. This service is also free but copied articles are charged for.
Language courses in Norwegian are available, as are a number of other languages which are based on an English vocabulary. More exotic languages are available through our inter library lending scheme.

Our library subscribes to The Economist and Time magazine.

The vast majority of our 900 video films are in English or with English subtitles. In Norway dubbing is only practised on films for the very young and nature films.

If you are interested in local history, genealogy or tourist information you might like to get in touch with us.



History

Haram Public Library was founded on November 23rd 1972, according to a draft dated September 27th 1972, drawn up under the chairmanship of Karl Alvestad.
However no official opening ceremony took place because this foundation was primarily the result of a reorganisation of local authorities' boundaries and also the result of new library legislation.
Due to this law Brattvåg library became the central library because of the concentration of employment, services and schooling here. Thus the central library became obligatory while the other libraries in the council area, now called branches to the central library, depend on budgetary goodwill.
However many of these libraries were well established from long before. The library on the island of Fjørtoft has a number of books from the 19th century, while that on the island of Haramsøy dates from 1846.
The arrival of the personal computer has given the library a new lease of life, as much to its routines as to its image. An automated catalogue, begun in 1988, gives greater access to the contents of the library’s collections. Lending is now automated at the central library, Vatne branch and Haramsøy branch.
