The Library charges fines for overdue items in short loan and for recalled items only.

  • Short loan - £0.50 per hour or part of hour
  • Overdue recalled loan - £2.00 per day

When a book is recalled by another person, the Library will email you to let you know that the book is needed by someone else.  If the due date is less than 7 days away the date won't change, if the due date is more than 7 days away the date will be reduced and you will be advised to return the book within 7 days.

In all other cases there are no fines for overdue books, but you will receive emails advising you if something is overdue, failure to return an overdue book may results in an invoice being sent for the replacement of the item. 

Please ensure you check your email account regularly for messages from the Library about items you have out on loan
