Fines and charges
We want everyone to have fair access to our items, so we charge fines for items which are returned late.
A fine of £20 or more on your Library account will prevent you from borrowing, renewing or placing holds.
We'll send you an email before your items are due. If you don't return them on time, we'll send you email alerts advising you that fines are accumulating. When items are more than 35 days overdue (14 days for items borrowed from another Library through Inter-Library Loan) you will be billed for the cost of replacement.
