Library Charges

We can currently only accept payments by cash or cheque (payable to ‘Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust’).

Check information about charges for:

Late return fees (click to expand)

Items reserved by another reader that become overdue will be charged at £1 per day.

Note that if you accrue £10 in total late return fees, you will not be able to borrow or renew any items until they are paid off.

Please remember to return or renew items on time to avoid these charges. Renewals can be made in person,  by telephone, by email, or you can use the renewal facility on the Shropshire Health Libraries Catalogue (you’ll just need your library card number to access this) 

Photocopying and printing (click to expand)

At the Shrewsbury Health Library, black and white printing and photocopying is 3p per page for A4 or 6p for A3, and colour printing is 10p per page for A4 and 20p for A3.

At the Shrewsbury Health Library, you’ll be given £1 of credit when you register for an IT Account, to use for photocopying or printing. This can be topped up at the library counter during staffed opening hours, or Staffordshire University students can use the online credit facility.

At Telford Health Library, photocopying is 5p per A4 copy (black and white).

Printing is not charged for in the Telford Health Library, but you will either need to supply your own paper, or purchase paper from Library Staff at 2p per A4 page.
