LOST BOOKS & FINES

Fines are currently suspended until 31 March. Please note from 1st March we will be implementing the same system as the council and library users with outstanding charges for lost Orange Sticker books. Users will be charged for the book and may have their library card blocked. Please have a look at home for any overdue books and return them to the library as soon as possible to avoid charges. This will help ensure all our library users are able to enjoy the newest titles.
