Temporary closure of the Mierscher Lieshaus

From the 22nd of November 2022 to the 3rd of December 2022


The Mierscher Lieshaus is part of the library network Bibnet.lu.

All member libraries use the same library platform, which will be changed in November 2022. During this transition, some library services will be temporarily unavailable:


  • From the 4th of November on: No new media can be added
  • From the 23rd of November on: Neither borrowing nor returning will be possible in the system.

The new platform is expected to launch on the 29th of November 2022.


The Lieshaus will close for a fortnight, from the 22nd of November to the 3rd of December. Our staff will use this time to:

  • do a stock inventory an
  • familiarise themselves with the new system.


On Tuesday, 6th December, the Mierscher Lieshaus will reopen as usual.


What does this mean for you, our users?


From the 23rd of November to the 29th of November you will not be able to reserve or renew media.

We advise you to make reservations via a-z.lu again from 30th November at the earliest.

However, you can use our return box at any time during the closure. Keep in mind, that your books/media will not be immediately deleted from your account.


The offer ebooks.lu remains available.


Any media whose return date is during this closure period will automatically be renewed on your account and will not be due until we reopen.


You are welcome to take more media than usual before the 22nd of November.


On the 6th of December (Tuesday) the Mierscher Lieshaus will open as usual.


From then on, the loan period will be 4 weeks (instead of the previous 3 weeks).

Extensions remain possible.


It cannot be ruled out that unforeseen complications may still arise when the library reopens due to the change of platforms. We will try to avoid these, but we thank you in advance for your understanding.


If you also use other Bibnet.lu libraries, please check their respective procedures.
