Late returns and lost books

 

If you do not return materials that you have borrowed by their due date, you will incur a charge (fine) for each overdue item. (Note: for the purposes of calculating a late-return fine, ‘day’ means a day on which the library is open).

  • Materials that are 3–12 days overdue: €1.50 per item.
  • Materials that are 13–22 days overdue: an additional €3 per item, i.e. a total of €4.50 per item.
  • Materials that are more than 22 days overdue: an additional €6.50 per item, i.e. a total of €11 per item.

If you lose an item belonging to the library, you will be required to replace it. If you lose or damage an item, please complete the lost-item form (Fomular Verlusterklärung) and send it by email to the local lending services team.
