No Library material shall be removed from the Library until its issue has been properly recorded by a member of the Library staff. The library card must be shown each time one borrows library material.

Materials borrowed shall be returned within the stipulated loan period. Members with overdue books may not borrow new ones until they return the old books and pay a fine. An over due charge of 0.30 euro per day per volume will be collected for returning the books after the due date borrowed by them.

The borrower is responsible to note the length of the loan period. The borrower is responsible for his or her loans until borrowed material has been returned and deregistered.

Books given for loan may be renewed for a further period provided no other reader has reserved the same. A member can reserve a book which is on loan, by filling a prescribed form available at circulation section.

The Librarian reserves the right to recall any books from any member at any time.
