To give you certainty and reassurance in the current circumstances, we’ve made some changes to make it easier for you to manage your library loans.
Fines and charges
We have cancelled all outstanding fines for late return of Templeman and Drill Hall Library items for Kent students, staff and external borrowers. We’ve either removed these from your library account or will do so in the next few days – so please don’t pay them.
Other types of charges, for example to cover the cost of lost items, will remain on your library account until you clear them.
Books now due end of July
We have further extended the due date of all library items you have on loan. You won’t have to return your items until at least 31 July.
This also means you won’t be able to reserve items for now. We’ll review this, so you may have to return books in August/September if someone else reserves them.
Returning library items
25 May: we have updated our advice on returning Templeman Library items.
Thank you for bearing with us. We are still working out some of our processes and advice, as these are unprecedented times for all of us.
If you have any problems or concerns about borrowing, returns or fines, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to help:
