Minimising Overdue Charges

  • Return your items on or before the due date.
  • Use the after hours chute at any branch for the return of items when the library is closed.
  • Provide the library with your correct email address. You will be sent a courtesy email reminder notice a few days before your items are due to be returned.
  • Renew your items before they are due. Items may be renewed once for a further three weeks online or at any library branch. All items may be renewed unless they are overdue or have been reserved by another borrower.
  • When you borrow, rather than taking a few items on each family member's card, try to borrow the maximum of 10 items on one or two cards.
  • Going on holidays? Let a staff member know before you borrow and an extended loan period can be arranged.

Remember, talk to us before fines become a problem. We will be pleased to help. 

Contact staff at any of the Hills Libraries for further information.
