Library Fees and Charges
Hire fees, fines for overdue items and other paid-for services
All books, including audiobooks and e-books, magazines and e-magazines are available to borrow free of charge.
Other things, such as reserving items, borrowing DVDs, hiring a room in one of our libraries or returning an overdue item are subject to a charge. DVDs must be paid for at the point of hire.
Our list of library fees and charges [87kb] shows which services you do have to pay for and how much each costs from April 2017 onwards. Please note that any items reported lost and paid for, and which are subsequently returned to a library within six months of payment, will be refunded in full.
You can pay library charges online by logging in to your account through our library catalogue - any fines or charges you owe will be highlighted. We accept debit or credit card payments this way.
