How do I pay for an item I have lost or damaged?

If you lose or damage anything you have borrowed from the Library, please tell Library staff as soon as possible.

If you do not find your items and/or your loans become very overdue, you will be asked to pay the replacement cost of £20 per item.

Please note:

  • We are unable to refund 'paid for items' that are subsequently found, but you can keep the item(s).
  • We are unable to accept replacement copies.

You can pay for lost items via your Library account:

  • Sign into Discover.
  • Click on the drop-down arrow next to 'My Account'.
  • Click on 'Fees'.
  • The item you have been billed for will be displayed along with the amount owed.
  • Select the item you wish to pay for.
  • Click 'Pay Fines'.
  • When the payment is made, please email
  • We will then remove the item from your account and send you an email receipt.

If you require any help, please contact us.
