Oxfordshire Libraries – return pre-pandemic items by November 2nd to avoid a fine

on Wed, 21/10/2020 - 7:15pm

All items borrowed before 22 March 2020 must be returned or renewed by 2 November to avoid fines.

Library loans due during lockdown were extended to avoid customers incurring overdue fines. This extension will end in the first week of November, and so items must be returned or renewed. You can safely return your items by dropping them off in our red returns boxes at the door of any library during opening hours.

If there are exceptional circumstances that prevent you from returning or renewing your loans, please contact your nearest open library https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/leisure-and-culture/libraries/f...

To check your current loans please log on to our website or the Library App (search Oxfordshire Libraries in the Apple App Store or Google Play).

What should I expect from a visit to an Oxfordshire library?

Your library visit may feel different from those in the past – you will see social distancing measures and we ask that you limit your visit to 30 minutes. You must wear a face covering (unless exempt) and we will ask you to fill in a Track & Trace form, or scan a QR code with the NHS Covid-19 app.

We still provide a lending service and limited access to computers and some libraries offer a validating service for bus passes and parking permits. Our face-to-face activities and events will be re-established when government advice informs us it is safe to do so. What you can count on is a warm welcome from our staff and volunteers!
