Loan amnesty ahead of new 'assumed lost' policy
As a one-off 'amnesty', if you return overdue library items no later than 23 March 2023, all charges for those items will be waived. You can return items to the library self-service kiosks or to staff.
From 1 April 2023, if a library item you've borrowed is overdue by more than 49 days – or 35 days for DVDs and music CDs – we will assume it's lost and charge the cost of replacing it to your account. To avoid this, renew the item before it's due for return, or return it on time. If you return the item later and it's still in good condition, we'll remove the cost of replacement will only charge for the late return.
