All standard loans issued for 7 days or more are subject to recall.

When a request is placed by another borrower on an item that was issued to you, you will be asked to return it early. The new due date will ensure that you have had the item for at least 1 week.

Recalled items cannot be renewed.

Email, txt or print notification will be sent to you, advising that the item has a new due date no sooner than 3 days from the date of notification.

A block will also appear in My Library Account under the Fines/blocks tab, as soon as the recall is made.

This 'Item is recalled before due date' block displays the new due date.

The fine rate for recalled items which are overdue is $3 a day.
