You don't need a Library card to borrow items from the Library. Just bring your items to the Issue Desk downstairs and tell us your student number or staff initials.
Most books and talking books are issued for 2 weeks, while DVDs are issued for 1 week. If you have not finished with them by the end of this period, you can renew them, as long as no-one else has reserved them.
Lower and Middle School: Up to 6 books and 3 DVDs
Upper School: Up to 12 books and 3 DVDs
Staff: Up to 15 books and 5 DVDs
You will receive an email reminder 2 days before your items are due, followed by a series of overdue reminders if you do not return your items. Please read these carefully and either renew or return your items promptly.
If you have lost or damaged an item, please either talk to a member of staff at the Issue Desk or contact Miss O'Hanlon by email. While the cost of items that need to be replaced may be added to your school bill, we do understand that accidents happen and you will not receive a sanction.
If you have not finished your book, talking book or DVD by the due date you can renew it, as long as no-one else has reserved it. You can do this in three ways:
If you have renewed the item several times (or had it out over a holiday) and had the item for six weeks (or three weeks for a DVD) then you will need to bring it to the issue desk to be renewed.

All items should be returned to the issue desk. They can either be handed to a member of library staff or placed in the "Returned books" basket. Items should never be returned directly to the shelf or to the wooden trolley of recently returned items behind the issue desk because they need to be scanned through our computer system to be removed from your account.
Change to normal procedure due to COVID-19: Please return items to the trolley in the foyer in front of the issue desk. All returned items will be removed from your account immediately and then quarantined for three days before being returned to circulation.
