Missing Library Books

>>Missing Library Books

Unfortunately books and CD s sometimes go missing from the library. We do have a registration system and this is being used to great effect by most library users. This then gives us a chance to send out reminder e-mails or letters when materials have not been returned for a while.

This system is based on trust and generally it works very well.

However, now and again, and for some reason more often in recent months, books are being taken from the library without the borrower having registered with us. This means we have no way of knowing where the book is, who took it and importantly we have no means of reminding the borrower to please bring it back.

Sometimes books get taken out from the ‘reference only’ section. We have now made the label bigger, so the books are easier to recognise as items that we ask to be left in the library at all times.

CD s have also disappeared, sometimes simply taken out of their cover and removed.

Unfortunately we do not have the funds to replace all lost items. We therefore decided to send out a monthly list of items that we cannot trace to increase our chances of retrieving them.

So please, could you check your bookshelves for our lost items and send or bring them back in case you find them? Or maybe you can remember that you took a CD into your room and forgot to put it back? Or maybe you own a copy of what we are looking for and you are happy to donate it to us?

We very much appreciate your co-operation.
