Like most libraries and all University libraries, the Library imposes a financial penalty upon borrowers who fail to return loans by the designated due date.

We do this to create an incentive to honour the agreement borrowers make when they loan the materials.

  • Library fines are $1.00 per day per item for books and AV items.
  • Library fines do not have to be paid until the total balance is $20.00 or more.
Once you owe the Library $20.00 or more your borrowing rights will be suspended until such time as you have cleared the total balance due.


The Library values your comments and suggestions on any aspect of its service. Please email to have your say.
