Book Reminders and Overdues

Library users are responsible for returning the books they have out on loan on or before their due date.

Reminders and overdue book notices are generated by the Library’s automated management system via e-mail and should not be replied to. These email notices however should not be relied on to indicate when books are due for return to the Library.

Books can be renewed as long as another Library user has not requested them, and as long as they have not become overdue.
