What can I do with the app?

The six different buttons are explained below:

Loans: see what you have on loan, when it’s due back, and click “renew” or “renew all” as needed

Overdues: shows you what is overdue. You might be able to renew these items, but if not it will explain why. If you’re not sure, please ask us.

Messages: Library staff may send you messages about your account. Check your emails and app regularly.

Charges: we don’t charge fines but do charge a replacement cost for items that are extremely late back. If you do have any charges, please contact us asap.

Reservations: the status of any items you have reserved will appear here.

Collect: once your reserved item is ready, it will appear here. (NB this doesn’t apply to Click and Collect, please check your emails for these).

To access the library catalogue, press the menu icon at the top right of your screen.
