Borrowing, Reservations & Renewals: Fines


We charge fines to encourage you to return items on time, so that all library users can access the resources they need. 

Please return or renew all items on time to avoid fines. You can check the due date by logging into your Library Account.

Email reminders will be sent to the email address you have provided to the college. A reminder will be sent before your items are due for return/renewal and again if your items become overdue. 

If you do receive fines you can pay by cash or credit/debit card at the library desk. Your Library Account will be restricted until overdue items are returned and fines are paid

Fine Rates

Loan period Fine per item Maximum fine
One week loans 10p per item per day £5 per item
Three week loans 5p per item per day £5 per item
