Overdue items

There are no charges for overdue items, however, these items need to be returned before further borrowing is available. Items overdue for longer than 28 days will be deemed to be lost, and replacement costs will apply. Replacement costs are calculated on an individual item basis.

  • Overdue items do not prevent customers from using public computers or Wi-Fi
  • Items left in the chute after hours are regarded as having been returned on the next day the library is open


Payments can be made online by logging into your account and clicking on Dashboard in the My Account menu or in person at one of our library branches.

Lost item fee refund

If you have paid for a lost item and recover the item within three (3) months, the fee can be refunded, provided a receipt is shown. The refund can also be used to pay any outstanding fees on your account.
