Book Loans

The Library of Fondazione Querini Stampalia believes in the importance of the circulation of information. It has always agreed to the requests of loans from other national and international institutions.

The service for personal loans was actived in January 2012 and it is free for the Library users and for the residents in the Veneto region.

Borrowers can take up to three books for a period of one month; renewable provided in case no other user has requested the same book.




Two photocopiers are available at the desk to make copies of some pages of the books.

Please use your Library card and charge it with the due amount.

Please insert your card in the photocopier to make copies.

Copyright must be respected.


To preserve delicate library material, publications before 1950 and over-sized bound materials or in poor condition cannot be photocopied. Such material can be scanned or photographed by making a request at the desk.
