Home Use Memberships
To borrow books home you must first obtain a library card and become a member. A Home Use Membership can be purchased for a period of either a year or six months. See the full price list here.
Anyone with an Israeli ID card can purchase a membership which enables them to borrow books home from the National Library of Israel.
Non-citizens can purchase memberships upon presenting a passport as well as a security deposit.
A Home Use Membership can only be issued or renewed in the presence of the owner of the ID card/passport.
The membership fee, the number of books that can be borrowed and the loan period of each book is determined by various criteria.
