Pay Library Fines

Fines are charged on overdue material. You will normally receive a notification, as a courtesy, that your library materials are due for renewal or return. Please remember to return library material on time or renew your items to avoid paying fines.

If you do incur a fine, you can pay it:

  • Online using a credit or laser card - for any fines over €5.00 (you must pay your fine in full if you choose the online option)
  • In cash at all the self-check machines.  In addition to cash, payment can be made with credit/debit card at the self-check machine in the Short Loan area only.
