The Library (Membership) Card is your key to the Peace Palace Library. It grants you access to the Library and its premises. You can borrow, reserve and/or renew books, journals and other printed Library resources. In addition, your Library Card allows you online access to the Library's digital resources, such as licensed databases, e-Books (platforms), and e-Journals. The Library's databases and Digital Collections are included. With your Library Card you can login to the website and enjoy all its features.

The annual fee for a full Library Membership is € 50,00. To get a Library Card, click on the red button on the right.

First-time Library Users will receive their Library Card in person at the Service Desk. Please make sure to bring with you a valid photo ID (passport, EU ID Card or EU driver’s license). Your Card will be updated and activated.

Please note that for security related purposes, the Peace Palace Library will only accept contactless payments (payment/credit cards or payments via mobile telephones).
