Q. How do I return a book?


Loans should be returned using the self-service kiosks, or the self-returns machine at the Maughan Library.

  • One and four week loans can be returned at any library
  • 24hr Rolling loans must be returned to the library from where they were borrowed
  • Inter-library loans can be returned at any library

When the libraries are closed books can still be returned via drop boxes while the respective buildings are open.
