How to use the library

  • Renew your library items

    You can renew up to three times, unless your items have been requested by another borrower and renew overdue books but existing fines will still apply.

    For some services we have to charge. Here’s a breakdown of our hire costs, fines and other charges.

  • Overdue and lost items

    The easy way to avoid overdue items is to return your loan items on time. However, even with the best intentions, sometimes items become overdue. This page outlines our overdue process and payment plan.
