THUAS students get a 50% discount on their Koninklijke Bibliotheek (KB) membership , so they pay just € 7.50/year. Lecturers/staff members pay € 15/year for a KB membership.

Using public libraries
A one-year membership for The Hague Public Library costs students € 10. To obtain this, you will need to present a valid student ID card, a proof of identity and a recent proof of address on a document such as a bank statement or wage slip.
By being a member of your own public library (jeugdpas, basispas, sterpas or vriendenpas), you can borrow from other Dutch public libraries. Just take your library card and a valid proof of identity to a library other than your own, and a library employee at the reception desk will make a library card for you.
