Items that are returned or renewed after the due date will accrue late charges, up to £15 per item. When items have been overdue for an extended length of time, we will issue a bill for the replacement cost of the item. If you return the item, we will waive the replacement cost and you will only have the late charges to pay.

Library staff can provide full breakdowns of late charges and item replacement costs.

Do I need to pay the full amount?

If the charges on your account include the cost of a replacement item that you still have in your possession, then before making the payment please return the item to the library helpdesk immediately so we can remove the cost from your account. You will then only have the remaining late charges to pay.
