Library Essentials: Pay a Fine


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.

 You won't be able to borrow any item if you have a fine of over €5 on your library account. You can reduce or clear a fine by:

  • Using the Smartcard Fines Kiosk near the self-issue machines on Q floor of the Boole Library.
  • Paying at the Library & IT Desk in cash or by debit/credit card.
  • Paying at the Service Desk in Boston Scientific Health Sciences Library (Brookfield) in cash. 
  • You can also pay by cheque or postal order, payable to Boole Library UCC.
