Library vacation loans – information about loaning library books over the summer

ICLibrary vacation loans will start from Monday 9 June. Items issued or renewed after that date, which have not been requested by other users, will be due on Friday 3rd October 2014.

If your book is requested by another person during the vacation period, you will be notified by the library and given 15 days to return the requested item. This system ensures that customers who need access to items are able to obtain them and that borrowers have sufficient notice to be able to return materials.

Equally, items which have outstanding requests when they are loaned will be issued for a period of 15 days.

Any items you have requested will be held for you for an extended period of 5 days. If you would like us to hold them for longer then please email the Library Helpdesk at

You can find full details of vacation arrangements can be found on the Library webpages. If you have any queries regarding the above arrangements please do not hesitate to contact the Library Helpdesk.
