Q. What happens if I return my books or laptop late?

I have some books and a laptop due tomorrow, but am not planning to come to the Library, what happens if they are returned late.


If you return items after they are due you will get a block on your account. This block will be for the same length of time as the item is overdue. For example if the item was returned 4 days late, the block generated will be for 4 days after that. 

Books are automatically renewed unless:

  • they have been requested by another user
  • you have overdue loans
  • your account is blocked
  • your library membership has expired

Check your Library Search Search account regularly to keep your loans up to date. The library sends reminders to your Westminster email account.

Laptops and Macbooks cannot be renewed and need to be returned to the Library or safe that they were originally borrowed from.

Inter library loan requests can only be renewed once and you will have to contact the Library to do so.
