Library Fines

  • Fines will only be incurred on a book requested by another user which is not returned when due.
  • Fines are charged at £2 per item per day
  • There is a maximum fine limit of £20 per item

Why we charge fines

Our fines system is intended to encourage users to return borrowed items by the date they are due back so they are available for the next user. This ensures equality of access for all users. We will only charge a fine if you do not return an item that has been requested by another user.  

How to avoid fines

  • Check your University email account regularly for emails about requested books
  • Do not lend your Aber Card to anybody else - you are liable for all items on your account
