When do fines stop accumulating?
Fines continue to accrue until the item has been returned to the Library.
Can I borrow items if I have unpaid fines?
Yes, but only if your total fines are less than $100. Once fines reach $100, borrowing privileges are suspended until the fine is paid.
Will I be fined if I lose an item?
Yes. Lost items are charged as a Non-returned item.
What is a Recalled Item?
If an item is overdue, and is in high-demand, the Library may recall the item. You will receive an email from the Library if this occurs, outlining a Recall Date. If the item is not returned by this Recall Date, a higher rate of fine is charged, in additional to any existing fines accumulated.
What if I don’t return an item?
If an item is overdue by 14 days, you will be issued with a Bill for Replacement. This fee is $130 (or the actual cost of replacement), plus a $50 administration fee. Any overdue fines accumulated on the item are also payable.
I’ve been sent a Bill for Replacement, but the item is not lost. What should I do?
Return the item to the Library immediately. The $180 fee will be waived, but the overdue fines accrued are still payable.
Can I renew an overdue item?
Yes. However, any overdue fines are still payable
Can I pay an overdue fine before I have returned the item?
No. Fines are not finalised and non-payable until they are returned.
I have paid my fines, but they still appear on My Library Record. What should I do?
Contact the Library. There may be a short delay before your Library Record is updated. Library staff can check your payments, and adjust your Library Record accordingly.
Will the Library send me a reminder when my items are due back?
No. All Library items loaned out are accompanied by a Due Date slip – this is your reminder. This should be kept in a safe, prominent place. You can always check your loans by logging in to My Library Record.
