Anyone may visit the library and enjoy the collection at the Alliance Française de Lahore. However, you must be a student or become a member of the Alliance Française de Lahore in order to check out material from the library. To borrow our French language books, movies, magazines and language learning materials just come by the library.
To acquire the membership of the library, the fee is Rs. 1000. Two passport size pictures and photocopy of your ID card are required. You will also have to fill in a form that is available at the library. You will be issued a card that is valid for a year. It will allow you borrow books and DVDs.
Library hours are different from the office hours of the Alliance.
The loan period is two weeks
– Books: up to 3 at a time
– DVDs: up to 1 at a time
– Magazines & newspapers: up to 1 at a time (the most recent is non-circulating). They are borrowed on an Honor System: no due-date, please return them when you’re done reading (within the center).
If you fail to return the books or DVDs within the two week period, a fine of Rs.5 for books and Rs.10 for DVDs will be charged for every day that the material hasn’t been returned.
You may renew your books by phone (04-35874301-03) or by coming to the library in person and informing the librarian. You cannot renew your books by email.
You are responsible for the items you borrow. We ask that you return items in the same condition as when you borrowed them.
If borrowed items are damaged or lost, we ask that you purchase a new copy for the library. If you can’t purchase a new copy, we will charge a replacement fee.
Thank you for adhering to these policies, which help us ensure that all members have equal access to the collection.
