Borrowing Books Over the Summer Vacation

As Summer term approaches its conclusion, those of you who are already looking forward to coming back in September/October (you are, aren't you?) may be starting to think of stocking up for studying over the vacation (well, you'll need to do something while it's raining ;-) ). You’ll then be delighted to hear that from Monday next week we’ll be rolling out our Summer Vacation loan period, which will be as follows:

  • All Ordinary and Week Loan books now borrowed by current First and Second Year Undergraduates will be issued with the return date of 2nd October.
  • All Ordinary and Week Loan books borrowed by Postgraduate students will be issued with the return date of 4th October.
  • All Ordinary and Week Loan books borrowed by Staff & Researchers will be issued with the return date of 27th September.
  • Current Finalists – those completing their studies this term – who still wish to borrow books should note that their books will be issued only until 17th June  – and don’t forget to clear your Library account with us before you go!

All Leisure Reading books will be issued until 7th October.

Please note that ALL books are subject to recall during the Summer Vacation if requested by another user, so if you borrow books for the holiday please keep an eye on your Loughborough student email account as that is where we will be sending the reminder to. Fines will accrue if recalled books are not returned – don’t come back to a nasty surprise!

Don’t forget that we’re still open during the summer even when you’re not here, so if you need to pop in, you can find a list of our vacation opening hours on the Library homepage here -

Alternatively, you can contact us by phone (01509 222360) during office hours, or email our Ask A Librarian enquiry service ( ).

Have a great summer!
