Minimising charges

Return or renew in time

You can avoid unnecessary charges by returning your loan items on time to any Warwickshire Library. Interlibrary loans (books from another authority) have to be returned to the Warwickshire library that they were borrowed from.

There are many ways to check the return date of your loans and renew your loan items.

Overdue notifications

We will send you overdue notifications as a courtesy. We hope that these reminders are helpful, but please be aware that failure to receive a courtesy email will not oblige your library to waive any overdue charges that you may incur. Contact Warwickshire Libraries if you have any difficulties.

The following table explains when the overdue notifications are triggered.

Overdue notice Books and talking books CD’s
First overdue email, telephone call or letter 15 days overdue 8 days overdue
