Changes to fees and charges
In Dec 2016, we introduced fines for the late return of child and teen items. These will be charged at a rate of 5p per item per day. Fines for adult books will rise to 25p per item per day. Reserving items in stock at any Barnet Library is now a free service. Find out more including how to avoid fines.
