Library fees and charges

Hire fees, fines for overdue items and other paid-for services

All books, including audiobooks, e-books, magazines, e-magazines and e-newspapers, are available to borrow free of charge.

Other things, such as reserving items from outside West Berkshire stock, hiring a room in one of our buildings or returning an overdue item are subject to a charge.

You can pay library charges online by logging in to your account through our library catalogue - any fines or charges you owe will be highlighted. We accept debit and credit card payments this way.
