Renewing and returning books
How do I renew my books?
Normal loans and seven day loans can be renewed as long as they are not reserved by another reader.
You can renew
- using the My Account module on the library catalogue - see How do I access My Account?
- in person at any library issue desk
It is your responsibility to ensure that books are renewed or returned on time.
The date given at the point of issue or renewal is the official notification of when they are due back.
Courtesy e-mail reminders will be sent the day before your books are due for renewal.
Non receipt of these reminders will not be accepted as reasonable grounds for waiving fines.
If you are unable to renew your books please contact the library.
Where do I return books?
Books should normally be returned to the library from which they were borrowed. This ensures that books are taken off your record promptly, and are back in circulation and available for other to readers to borrow as fast as possible.
- You can return items by using the self-return machine (available at Main Library and in High Demand). Please pay careful attention to the instructions given on the screen of self-return machine and keep your receipt as proof of return.
- Some of our smaller site libraries operate book boxes when the library is closed so that you can return books outside of their normal opening hours.
