Suggestion box comment 25.10.17: fines

Increase fine for not bringing a book back on time. 5p is nothing. What is 15p for bringing back a book 3 days late that another student is waiting for and really needs?

Unfortunately I think you may have been misinformed about our fines system!

The way it currently works is that you will only be fined if a book is recalled by another reader. So if it’s overdue but nobody else wants it, you won’t get a fine. However, if it has been recalled you will be fined £2.50 a day until the book is returned. Short Loan books are charged at £1 per hour overdue.

Hopefully these charges mean that students will be encouraged to bring books back on time when they are needed by someone else.
