You may be eligible for a refund on a library charge if we have invoiced you for a book which is subsequently returned before we re-order a replacement.  This is at the discretion of the Library.

In the event that a library charge is to be refunded (either fully or in part) the Library will make the refund to the card account from which the original payment was made.  If, for reasons beyond the Library's control, the refund cannot be made to the originating card/bank account, the refund will be made to an alternative bank account provided by the payer.
