All you need to know about library membership, borrowing and loans

Our library operates auto-renewal and does not charge fines for the late return of library resources.

Under normal circumstances, and provided no-one else has requested them, most items auto-renew at the end of their loan period. If an item is requested by someone else it will be recalled and you will have 7 days to return it.

Read more about this, including who and what auto-renewal applies to and what happens if you don't return a requested loan on time, by clicking here.

If you are in possession of library resources borrowed prior to 1 September 2021 it is important that you read this guidance.
