Library Fines to be Reinstated in 2022

BLAMS logo

Library fines for adults will be reinstated from Monday 17th January 2022.

The temporary suspension of library fines for adults, begun at the start of the first Covid lockdown, is coming to an end.

We will start charging for overdue loans again from 17th January 2022. Until that date, long overdue books can still be returned ‘fine-free’ to any Bolton library. We would love to get these books back on our shelves for others to borrow.

Library opening hours and details of fines and charges can be found on our website.

However, If you have any questions or concerns, please do speak to library staff. Alternatively, you can contact us on 01204 333173 or email
