LRC fines amnesty - TODAY ONLY

The LRC will be holding a fines amnesty today, Friday 12th February!

Bring back your overdue books, DVDs and other loans on these two days and we will waive your late fees. If you have been avoiding the LRC because of a book you borrowed in September (or in first year...), now's your chance for a fresh start!

The following conditions apply:

- fines will only be waived if all overdues are returned (no renewals)

- you must bring your overdues to the front counter and speak to a staff member (items left in the returns bin will not be eligible for the amnesty)

- we will write off any existing fines you have on your account if the items have already been returned – just ask a staff member during the amnesty

- the amnesty does not apply to two-hour loans (such as iPads and MS Surface tablets)

- fines paid before 12th February will not be refunded

- fines will be charged as usual from after half-term (22nd February) onwards (5p per book per day; £1 per DVD per day)

- damaged and lost items will incur the usual replacement charges

We look forward to seeing you back in the LRC!

Notice to all students

Do you have an overdue book or DVD from the LRC? If it’s more than 4 weeks since its due date, you will already have received several notifications and may now face a temporary exclusion from college. This policy will come into effect from Monday, 22nd February (the first day back after half-term), so please return your overdue items as soon as possible. Speak to an LRC staff member if you have any concerns – don’t ignore the problem!

Lost books: if you have lost a book, please speak to the LRC manager, Danielle. You will have to pay a replacement fee but we can negotiate a payment plan to help you with this.

To give you a head start, the LRC will be holding an amnesty this Friday, 12th February, to encourage you to return your outstanding loans and have your fines waived. See below for the full terms and conditions – please note that there will be no further amnesties this year.

LGBT History Month

February is LGBT History Month, a time to celebrate the LGBT community and reflect on the struggle for equal rights.

Visit the LRC to access a wide range of books, DVDs and other resources by or about LGBT people. More information and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and questioning young people (and their friends) can be found at Young Stonewall and its parent site, Stonewall.

LRC food and drink policy - zero tolerance

Food and drink (other than bottled water) are not allowed in the LRC or LRC2 and you must leave any cold food and drink that you have with you at the front counter upon entering either of these spaces. Hot food is not permitted in the LRC at all. We understand that you need sustenance and are happy to hold your place for up to ten minutes while you step outside for a break but any student who is caught with food or drink at their PC or study desk will receive an incident report and be asked to leave for the rest of the day. Students who receive multiple incident reports face longer-term bans.

Special attention is drawn to the Group Study Room, which has been left a mess of sweet wrappers, crisps, crumbs and fizzy drink spills on several occasions recently. Not only is this against the LRC’s Code of Conduct but it creates an unpleasant working environment for other students. Please work with the LRC staff to help us continue to provide the best possible environment for study.

The LRC's 5 Book Challenge

If you read any books (for fun) over the Christmas break, don't forget to write them in your 5 Book Challenge reading diary (available from the LRC front counter).

Every time you read 5 books, take your completed diary back to the LRC and enter the draw to win a Kindle Fire tablet or a Waterstone's voucher! You can enter as many times as you like - just pick up a new diary from the LRC front counter.
