Loans & Fees

Being a member of the library is free, and it costs nothing to borrow or download our books, use our computers, or join our story time and IT taster sessions.

However, we do charge for some services. Until 31st March 2024, there are no fines charged on late items.


We charge £2.20 per week for borrowing our DVDs. If the DVD is overdue, we charge a further £2.20 per week (or part of a week).
