Any items not returned to the library are the responsibility of the borrower.

The user accepts this responsibility and agrees to pay for replacement and a £20 library administration fee should an item be lost.

Books borrowed on inter library loan need to be renewed via the library.

Failure to return a loan item will result in the borrower being charged for a replacement copy.
