Published on 19 December 2021

From Monday 20 December 2021,  we will, in the spirit of Christmas, not be charging fees on items that are overdue. This waiver will apply to fines currently owed.

This amnesty does not apply to charges for lost and damaged items.

Overdue items 

If you have items that are overdue, you can renew them online or return them to any of our library branches.

Renewal of rental items will incur a further rental charge.

How to renew library loans 

If the items are well overdue, please return them promptly to the library. The library is a shared resource, so please let others have a turn to borrow them.

Lost items

We send notices advising of you of overdue items, either by post or email.

If the item is not returned after the fourth and final notice, then it is regarded as lost. You will incur a charge for the replacement value of the non-returned item plus a $10.00 shelf-ready process fee.

The matter may be referred to a debt collecting agency.
