Our library doesn't charge overdue fines.
To save sending out reminders, if you need items longer than the three week issue period please renew them.
If you have overdue books, we will send out 3 reminders to return your books and to let you know the price of the items for your information if they are lost, damaged or not returned.
If after three months these items have not been returned you will be invoiced for the replacement cost and a $25 administration fee.
Ideally we would much rather work with you to resolve lost, or damaged items so please come in and have a chat to us.
