Renewing the lending period of books is possible three times via the personal account accessible through the OPAC.
Renewing is not possible:
· when the due date has already passed
· when there is a reservation on the book
· when there are open overdue fines
It is possible to prolong books via E-Mail more often, as long as there is no reservation on the book.
One week before the return date of books with the status „entlehnbar“ a reminder E-Mail is sent to you via E-Mail. After that another three reminders follow after the return date has passed.
The overdue fines are € 0,10 / book and day overdue and have to be payed in cash at the library office.
