The Short Loan Collection is made up of items that are in very high demand. In order to allow as many people as possible to use such items they are issued for either a day or over the weekend.
The collection is located opposite the Welcome Hub and is kept in the same number order as the main library collection. You can borrow and return short loan items using the self-service machines.
You may borrow short loan books for set periods:
|Day Checked out||Issued between||Due back by|
|Monday – Thursday||08.45 – 21.50||21.50 the next day|
|Friday||08.45 – 21.50||21.50 Monday|
|Saturday||10.00 – 21.50||21.50 Monday|
|Sunday||10.00 – 21.50||21.50 Monday|
Short loan items cannot be renewed.
Late returns are charged at £5 per day. You must return the item on the day it is due. If you leave it in the book bin it will be returned the following day and will incur a fine of £5 if it is the day after it is due back.
Some items in extremely high demand are kept behind the Welcome Hub and may be borrowed for 2 hours at a time for use in the Library only.
