REMINDER: Overdue and Lost Books
Please take good care of your library books and renew them on time.
Lost books are expensive to replace. On average it costs R1 765 and R1 905 to replace a humanities and a sciences book, respectively. If books are overdue or lost, all other users who may need these are denied access. Therefore, for overdue or lost books you will receive an overdue reminder and then a billing notice.
If you receive a large bill for overdue books that you still have please return them to the library right away. The bill will be reduced to a much lower overdue fine.
Preferably, remember to renew your books! The due date is stamped in the back of every book OR if you use a self-checkout machine please print a receipt that indicates the due date. For more information on fines and charges contact your librarian.
