Fees for overdue books

The fee for overdue is 0,30 PLN per day for one item. Overdue automatically blocks the library account.

Payments can be made by:

e-Payment Service – PayU – directly from the users’ library account

The electronic payment is available from your library account in the “Loans” bookmark for books which are overdue and have not been returned to the library yet, and in the “Fees” bookmark for books which are overdue but already returned.

Regulations for electronic payments [in Polish]

Safety

Online Payments service is supplied by PayU – a company that provides an online payment system. You can find more about the user’s security in PayU on https://www.payu.pl/en/user-security

Unblocking the library account

When you use the PayU, your library account will be unblocked almost immediately after the transfer has been made. 

For books which are overdue and have not been returned to the library yet you will get 3 extra days for returning them to the library or for renewing (it is possible only if: 1. no one else has ordered the book 2. your account is not blocked 3. you have not exceeded the limit of 3 renewals).

If you prefer a traditional money transfer in a bank or at the post office, you can download and print the payment form (it will appear while choosing the payment method). You will need to wait until the money has been registered in the account and then your library account will be unblocked. It can last up to 4 work days.

Minimum amount for online payment

The electronic payment option is available for fees more than 0,50 PLN.
