How to get a library card

You need a personal library card (The Reader Pass) to borrow books and materials.

Everyone can become registered library user without any restrictions. For registration, personal identity document shall be presented and registration document completed at the registration desk in Abonementas, on the second floor of the library.

The Reader Pass shall be handed out upon payment of the 0.87 EUR one-time charge.

The lost Reader Pass must be renewed.

If you already have The Reader Pass issued at any other Lithuanian public library, it is also valid in Molėtai library as well as in the most of Lithuanian public libraries upon registration in them.

There is no better way to become a member of community than by frequenting public library

Borrow a book and read it by the lake in the middle of the town

Molėtai library is called Molėtų biblioteka in Lithuanian and has not only cozy headquarters in the center of Molėtai town, but also a network of 24 libraries in smaller towns and villages of the Molėtai district.

You are very welcome to visit them, most of them are situated in spectacular landscapes that could provide an inspiration for your own book.
