Replacement of Lost or Damaged Material

Borrowed material must be handled with care. The owner of a card is liable to replace the lost or damaged materials which have been borrowed with the card. The material is replaced by presenting the library with a new comparable item or by paying the replacement fee determined by the library. Movies and CD-ROMs cannot, however, be replaced with a new copy due to copyright reasons. 

Suspending User and Borrowing Rights

The customer's borrowing rights will be temporarily suspended when a third reminder has been sent or when the customer's penalties (unpaid overdue or other fines) are €20 or more. The borrowing rights will be regained when the borrowed materials are returned or replaced and fines paid.
