If you can’t find what you are looking for please let us know – we will try and obtain them for you.

Overdue books and fines

There is a charge if you are late returning items you have borrowed, but you can avoid this by letting us know that you would like to keep them a bit longer. We will generally be able to give you a new date for returning them, but if someone else is waiting for them you will be asked to return them.
