Library Essentials: Pay a Fine

Everything you need to know to get started in the Library


Try to avoid fines by renewing your borrowed items or returning them on or before the due date.

Overdue standard and short loan books are billed at a rate of 50¢ per day per book, up to a maximum of €30 per item.

If you have a fine of over €5 on your library account you won't be able to borrow anything else until you have reduced or cleared it.

You can pay a fine at the Smartcard Fines Kiosk near the self-issue machines on Q floor of the Boole Library or at the Library & IT Desk.

You can pay a fine at the Service Desks in Boston Scientific Health Sciences Library (Brookfield) and the Cork University Hospital Library.

You can pay a fine by Smartcard, in cash, cheque or postal order. Make cheques and postal orders payable to Boole Library UCC.

Credit and Debit Cards are not accepted. Sorry!
