What may borrowers do?


Items are issued at the library's lending desk.


Two renewals are allowed (if not yet reserved by another client) by:

  • replying to the  library's courtesy e-mail to remind you that the book is due to be returned;
  • phoning the lending desk on 021 938 9492;
  • visiting the library;
  • signing in to My Account to renew loans online. However, no online renewals are allowed if loans are already overdue. 

If a book is already on loan to another client, it may be reserved online or phone the lending desk on 021 938 9492. You will be contacted by a staff member when the book is ready for collection.


  • Return library material to the lending desk during library hours.
  • After hours: drop returns into the book deposit box adjacent to the library entrance.
  • Return library material to any of the other libraries of the SU Library and Information Service.
  • Penalty for overdue items: 50c per item per day.
