If the library is closed, items can be returned through the return chute.
Self-service lockers, where you can order items, can be found near the entrances at the Department of Literature in Estonian (Estonia pst 8), the Department of Literature in Foreign Languages (Liivalaia 40) and at Kännukuke, Laagna, Pelguranna, Pirita, Pääsküla, Väike-Õismäe libraries and can be accessed 24/7. Items cannot be returned to the self-service lockers. For returning please use the returns chute.
Adult patrons of Tallinn Central Library may borrow items (books, CD-s, DVD-s etc) by ordering them to a DPD parcel machine. The sending cost is 4,50 euros and must be paid by the customer.
Underage patrons can use the service with adult intermediation. Due to this being a charged service, which may carry a bigger financial responsibility if a parcel is not retrieved, we recommend that a parent of an underage patron places the order.
It is possible to order items from all Tallinn Central Library’s departments and branch libraries. The items must be listed as AVAILABLE or In reserve collection in the e-catalogue ESTER. The order must be sent to one specific department or branch library – a library cannot combine items from different departments or branch libraries into one parcel.
When the library receives an order, we will reply with a confirmation e-mail which includes a bank link for service payment. When payment has been received, we will lend the item(s) to your patron account and then post the parcel. DPD will send you a notification via SMS and/or e-mail when your parcel arrives to a parcel machine.
You may return the item(s) to the closest Tallinn Central Library department or branch library. When the library is closed, you can return books and magazines through the return hatch. Please return the items before the due date. That way you can avoid paying overdue charges.
