Fees & Charges 2014 -2015

The City of Monash 2014-2015 budget came into effect from 1 July 2014, and brought with it a decrease in many library fees & charges!

The most notable change relates to overdue fines. Overdue items for items borrowed since 1 July will now be charged on a daily rate, instead of a weekly charge. Click here to see our Fees & Charges 2014-2015.

Remember, we can send you an emailed reminder either 3, 5 or 7 days before your loans are due. Speak to a staff member or log in to your library card to register your email address with us and activate this service. Books which are not reserved by other library members and are not more than 2 days overdue may be renewed online through your library account or by contacting library staff.
