If you return a book late, you will be subject to an overdue charge. The rate varies according to the book’s loan category (e.g. STC, long loan) and increases if the book has been requested by another reader.
For full details see our web page on overdue charges
If you lose or fail to return your book, you will be invoiced for the standard replacement cost (£50 per item). However, you can instead give us a new copy of the lost item.
