How to pay for charges

As long as the total due is £15 or less, you can pay your outstanding charges at any of our self-service kiosks. They all accept cash, and one kiosk in Main Library also accepts credit or debit card payment.  If you would like to pay by card over the phone, please call the Library on 01382 384087 during advertised Help Services hours.

If you have any questions about your charges, please speak to a member of staff in the InfoZone or phone the Library on 01382 384087.


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.
