Library Essentials: Pay a Fine

The Library offers a huge range of service and supports. Please see the options below to discover the wide range of options and services available to you.


We only charge fines for late return or a standard or short loan book if the book has been requested.  Otherwise there is no fine for late return.  

Overdue recalled books are billed at a rate of €1 per day per book, up to a maximum of €30 per item.

 You won't be able to borrow books/laptops if you have a fine of over €5 on your library account or if you have overdue items on your library account.

To reduce or clear a fine you can:

  • Pay at the Library Services Desk either in person or over the phone.  Payment can be in cash or by debit/credit card.
  • You can also pay by cheque or postal order, payable to Boole Library UCC.
