Renewals and Holds
Patrons may renew items depending upon:
- Material type
- Loan limits (see above)
- An existing reservation by another patron
Under normal circumstances patrons may renew materials once, but further renewal may be granted at the discretion of the library staff.
Library users may bring items to the library in order to renew them. Other patrons may renew items by one of the following methods:
Patrons may borrow resources during school breaks, as long at their accounts are in good standing.
Lost and Overdue items
An overdue email notice for students will be generated on a weekly basis, to be sent to group tutors, where students have items that are more than 3 days overdue. Once a fortnightly, an overdue email notification will be generated to parents of students who have items that are more than 30 days overdue. Students will be copied in on this e-mail.
Patrons are requested to pay for lost/damaged items, preferably by cheque. Receipts will be issued for all payments received.
Fines will be refunded when items are found within 12 months of payment and if the item is returned in good condition.
The full cost will be charged for any resource returned damaged if, in the opinion of the Senior Library team, the extent of the damage renders the resource unsuitable for circulation. Patrons may keep any damaged items which they have paid for.
Information for Leavers
Once the Senior Library has been notified that a patron is confirmed as leaving, their last date is set in the library system for two weeks prior to their actual leaving date. An e-mail is sent to parents to advise them when borrowing rights will be withdrawn.
The Finance department will be notified of leavers with outstanding charges one week before the patron’s leaving date. The library then endeavours to ensure resources are returned, or lost items paid for prior to departure.
