Notice of Reopening of JICC Library

After a prolonged season of closure, we are pleased to notify you that the Japan Information & Culture Centre (JICC) Library has reopened in a limited way. Our library is open to facilitate the borrowing of reading materials, returning of borrowed items and use of the spaces for study. More information on our library reopening is available here.

We have a small library at the Japan Information & Culture Centre, Embassy of Japan. From our library, one can find Japanese language learning textbooks, books on culture, novels, manga etc.
We have library membership for those who are interested. To become a library member, one is required to fill in a library membership application card. The card is available at our library. Once the membership application card has been filled in, a membership card is prepared by the Japan Information and Culture Centre. The membership card will be ready for collection by the applicant in two to three working days. Library membership is free and valid for one year. Once library membership expires, the applicant can renew his/her membership. This is also free of charge.
Membership card holders can borrow two books from our library for a period of two weeks. If need be, and also depending on demand, a card holder can renew the book(s) for two weeks.
