    Registration and Library Card

    The d.a.i. library is a public library. Our extensive range of all types of media is freely available for use in the library.

    If you would like to borrow materials, you will need a library card. You can get one from the check-out desk during opening hours.


    Our opening hours:

    Tues - Fri: 1 – 6 pm
    Sat:  11 am - 2 pm

  • Three for One

    New: With a valid library card from our library, you can now also borrow media from the Tübingen city library and the Institut Culturel Franco-Allemande. You can use library cards from those libraries to check out materials here, as well.

The cooperation library card from the d.a.i. library, Tübingen city library (Stadtbibliothek), and the Institut Français

  • With a valid library card from our library, you can check out books free of charge from the Tübingen city library and the Institut Culturel Franco-Allemande. In turn, with library cards from those institutions, you can check out media from our library.
  • Simply show your valid library card and documentation of the validity (e.g. receipt from the last materials you borrowed, or a print-out from your online account) to the other library and then register on-site with us, the city library, or the Institut Français.


To register with the d.a.i. library, bring your ID card, passport, or student ID with you. Do you live outside of Tübingen and only want to use the d.a.i. Tübingen’s e-lending option? Register for e-lending

To register, children under the age of 14 need written consent from their parent or legal guardian. You can find registration forms at the check-out desk or download it here to print out.
