Waiving charges for late return after re-opening the library

Waiving charges for late return

Based on an exception to the Library Regulations, we waive the charges for late return incurred from 13 March 2020 inclusive. Charges for reminders and late return incurred before this date will not be waived. Loaned documents can be returned only into the book return box located behind the entrance door to the building (accessible Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 20 p.m., excluding public holidays) or by post, with consignment insurance. Returning books in person at the loan desk is not possible at this time.

When a loaned document is returned using the book return box by the end of the day’s LCAS opening hours (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays), the loaned document will be removed from the user account on the same day.

When a loaned document is returned using the book return box after the end of the day’s LCAS opening hours (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays), the loaned document will be removed from the user account on the next day on which the LCAS is open.

When a loaned document is returned by post, with consignment insurance, the loaned document will be removed from the user account immediately following its delivery to the staff of the LRSD.
