What Should I Do if I Lose Something I Have On Loan?

If readers lose borrowed books, you must compensate for the same books or new-edition books, and pay for 5 Yuan (Processing fee).

If the lost books which readers borrowed are out of print or sale, readers must pay fines according to rules of library's lending management.

Standards of paying fines are followed as

If it is a Chinese book and has been published

  • in 5 years, the compensation will be Original Price*3;

  • in 6-10 years, the compensation will be Original Price*5;

  • in 11-15 years, the compensation will be Original Price*8;

  • for over 15 years (not included), the compensation will be valuation price*10.

If it is a foreign book, the compensation will be Original Price*10 (Original Price of foreign books need to be converted into Chinese RMB at the current exchange rate).
