Borrowing

How many books can I borrow? 
You can borrow as many books as you like.  

How long can I borrow? 
You can borrow books for 2 weeks and longer if you renew or extend your loan. You can login to the library catalogue using your usual computer logins and renew your loans. You can also renew your loan in person at our friendly help desk.You don't need to bring the book to do this. 

How can I get a book that's out?  
If a book is on loan and you'd like to read it next: you can reserve it. Make your request to the library staff or reserve online by logging into the library catalogue using your usual computer logins.

I've lost a book, what do I do?
When you borrow a book, it's your responsibility to look after it. Returning it in a reasonable time not only minimizes the risk of misplacing a book but shares the book with members of our school.  You'll receive friendly email reminders to help you.  

  • If you've lost a book, don't worry! Let the library staff know and we'll try and help you.
  • If it can't be found within a reasonable time, the cost of replacing the lost book will be added to your school fees.
