Happy Easter!

On Good Friday, the Library goes on Easter holidays and opens again Tuesday, April 3, see our changed opening hours here. As usual, you can use our website for many things. You can search databases, journals, read e-books and articles, do book reservations, review our subject guides, and much more.

Are you planning to visit the Library on Maundy Thursday? why not borrow a yellow book for Easter, you will find them on the reading shelves in the library entrance. In Norway, for a long time, tradition has been to launch and read crime novels during Easter holidays, Easter Crimean (påskekrim). It was from the beginning an april joke who took off and became a tradition. In Sweden we already have a fairly strong tradition of reading crime fiction, so Easter crimes have not become the same success here. But it’s great to read something entertaining when you have some free time, so be sure to borrow a book or two!

We wish you all a Happy Easter!
