How do I borrow a book?


Once you have found the item you are looking for on the shelf, the way that you issue it changes depending on which site you are at:

Main Library, Joule Library, Precinct Library and Stopford Library all have self issue machines.

You will need your Library card.

Instructions for using the self-issue machines are displayed on the touch screens but please ask a member of Library staff for help if you need it.

Please retain your receipt and check that all details are correct before leaving the Library.

Art, History and Architecture LibrayBraddick Library, Kantorowich Library and Lenagan Library do not have self issue machines.

Please see a member of staff at the Customer Services desk and they will issue the item for you.

You will be unable to issue library items if:

  • Your Library account is blocked due to unpaid fines/overdue loans and recalls
  • Your Library card has expired
  • You have reached your loan quota
