Some inter-library loans may incur a charge of £14.65 – if this applies you will be contacted before we proceed with your request. There is no charge for audio/visual items and some borrowers may be exempt from these charges and there is no charge for anyone under 18.

When a reservation has arrived at your library, you will be informed by whatever method you have nominated for your account (voicemail, text, email, etc.) and, if you log in to your account, you will see the reservation's status will have changed to 'Ready to collect'.
