Books should be returned on or before the due date in the library entrance. Books not returned on time to the proper location will result in a fine.

An overdue book will automatically block a patron from borrowing. The library will send patrons with overdue books two overdue notices. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt a borrower from a fine.


Fines

Any book overdue for more 2 months will be considered lost and its cost, plus 10% of the current price of the book to cover the administrative overheads and the previous overdue penalties will be added to the borrower’s library account.


Renewals

Books can be renewed on or before the due date provided 2 months.
