Paying Library Fines, Invoices & External Reader Fees

You may continue borrow from the Library and renew loans online, on the self-service kiosks, in person or by phone with a small fine outstanding on your Library account. You can also reserve online with fines outstanding, but please make sure your fines are under £10.00 when you come to collect your reservation.

If there are any extenuating circumstances that lead to your incurring fines, please ask to speak in confidence to one of the senior members of staff at the Loans Help Desk.
