Q. Are there fines for overdue materials?


We have to make sure that our books are equally available to all. 

Therefore, library users who return their books after the due date, will be fined as follows:

Open shelf books

    R0.50 per book per day

Short Loan books

    R2.00 per hour

48 hour material (books and DVDs)


Open shelf material overdue for more than a month

    R320 automatic billing*

If you do not return your book at all, the Library will charge a replacement fee to your student account.

*The automatic billing can be reversed as soon as the material is returned to the library. If the material is not returned then a quote will be requested and the exact replacement cost of the material may be charged from the students’ bank account.

 Do the right thing!  Please ensure all book & AV items are returned to the library, so that these resources are available going forward for other students, staff & visitors.
