The Library is open over the Easter Break – from 18th March – 18th April Bedford Library opens 24/5 and from 19th April onwards: 24/7.
But if you’re not going to be here, you can borrow books for extended periods over the break.
||1st April 9am
||8th April 11am
This goes for renewals also, so don’t forget to renew your books before the Easter break.
How to renew books
Library books can be one of 4 different loan statuses:
Normal Loan: 3 weeks for undergraduates, 6 weeks for postgraduates
One Week: 1 week
Three Day: 3 day
Short Loan: Between 11am – 4pm on the day of issue, or between 4pm on the day of issue – 11am the following day.
But if you need a book for longer, it couldn’t be easier to renew.
If you can’t renew your books check that:
- they haven’t been requested by someone else (you will have received an email to let you know)
- your fines haven’t come to more than £35 (check the Fines and Fees section on the left – you can pay online or come into the Library)
- they are not Short Loan items (these cannot be renewed! If you can’t return them by 11am or 4pm, photocopy a chapter instead)
Come into the Library, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the Ask A Librarian online chat with any questions.
Each year book, journal, and DVD loans are extended over the Christmas vacation – which means you can keep items for longer without renewing!
