Charges on Overdue Items

There are no charges for items that are brought back on time.  You will receive a reminder 4 days before your item is due back.  You can renew your items online, by telephone or in person at a branch. You can renew items up to four times, for three weeks each time (provided the items are not required for request).

A first overdue notice will be sent 7 days after the item is due back; the second will be 14 days after the item is due back.

Borrowers will be charged €0.05 per per day for any items not returned or renewed by the due date. You must pay the replacement cost of items that are lost or damaged. 

Borrowers will not be charged to reserve a book from within Kildare County Council Library Service.  Reserves of items ordered online from other library authorities in the Republic of Ireland will be charged at €5 per reserve.  You are asked to pay promptly any fees and charges, including fines for late return of items, associated with the use of library facilities, materials and services.

Parents and legal guardians are responsible for any charges or fines incurred by their children in their use of the library.

Borrowers who accrue €10.00 in fines will have their borrowing privileges withdrawn.


Charges for Requests

Kildare Library Service will continue to supply requested items from within the Kildare Libraries free of charge.
