Library fines on overdue items

We charge fines on:

  • Overdue items recalled for other members - 50p per day (after 1 day’s grace), maximum £10.00 per item
  • Overdue items from the 24 hour collection -50p per hour (after 15 minute’s grace), maximum £10.00 per item

If you have outstanding fines of more than £10.00 your library record will be blocked and you will not be able to borrow or renew until the items are returned and the outstanding payment made.

Library fine rates are reviewed annually at the end of the academic year. Any changes to fine rates are agreed by the Library Leadership Team.

How to pay your fine 

You can pay your fine either by cash or cheque at a library desk, or online.

To pay online, sign in to your library account on Library Search, choose Fines & Fees and click on Pay Fine.
