Other important notes:

  • A 3-day grace period will be granted for all staff and students of the Lingnan University to return overdue General Collection and HKALL materials. That means those library materials that can be returned within three library opening days from the due date will not incur any overdue fines.
  • Overdue fines can be paid by cash or Octopus cards at the Circulation Counter. Please refer to the service hours of the Circulation Counter in the Library Opening Hours.
  • If your library account has any service blocks or fines equal to HK$5 or more, your library account will be blocked and no further checking out or renewal (including automatic renewal) will be allowed. You should settle all fines before resuming your checkout privileges.
