We understand that sometimes a book is so good you just want to hang on to it for a bit longer... or that sometimes a book disappears down the back of the sofa...

Don't worry! If you receive an overdue notice from us, just pop into the library and let us know that you would like to renew the book for a little bit longer or that you're still looking for the book that has gone missing. You can still take new books out of the library even though you have other books that are overdue.
