Library loan extensions

Good news from the library, which will hopefully alleviate any concerns you may have about library fines during the current lockdown period.

To help you stay at home and cut down on non-essential trips to the library, we extended the due date on all library books for the second time. This time, loans were extended until Sunday, 28 March and the extension applies to all loan types: standard, 7 day, and short loan. All new loans will go to this date too.

Return your items in the book drop, located to the right of the main entrance if recalled. The recall process is still in place for items that are in demand so do continue to place holds on anything you need and we will try to get the book back for you.Metal letter-box type flap (labelled Book drop) in glass and metal section of building

If you do get a recall notice for a book you have on loan, the due date will be brought forward as normal, and you’ll need to return it in the usual way via the external Book Drop. If you have any difficulty doing this, please get in touch with us on 0118 378 8770 or library@reading.ac.uk for advice and further information. If you have an inter-library loan and are not certain about the date that it is due for return, please contact us via the details above or check your library account via Enterprise.
