Set new password from September 20th - Expanded opening of reading rooms

Set new password from September 20th

In order to continue to guarantee the confidentiality and security of your access to the KB's digital services, we are switching to a new system for logging in.
Because of this switch it is necessary that you set a new password after the 20th of September via the forgot password option.
Your customer or card number remains unchanged.
