I have lost or damaged items, are there options for me if I am experiencing financial difficulty?

Yes, there are. We encourage you to make payments on money owing for lost or damaged items if you can. But you don’t need to pay all at once. Please have a chat with one of our friendly team members who can set up a payment plan for you. You can still visit and borrow library items if you have money owing.
