Opening Hours: 
The Children’s Section will be open whenever the centre is open, Inshallah.

Using the Library:
The library will be run as a self-service system based on trust.

To borrow items, you have to be a member. Please fill out the online membership form to proceed. There is a nominal annual membership fee of £5.00 to join the library. Please note that this will be due at a fixed date, irrespective of when you joined the library. All monies, whether fees or donations, go towards maintaining and expanding the library to provide the best possible Islamic resources for your children, Inshallah.

When you would like to borrow any item, fill out the available forms as completely as you can, and place on the allocated tray. Kindly follow the instructions below with regards to the number of items you can borrow and the length of time the items can be kept for.

When you would like to return an item, please place it in the allocated area.

Fines:
Your library card entitles you to borrow up to 4 items for 3 weeks (we request that you do not borrow more than 1 game, CD or DVD at a time).

Fines will be charged on all items that are returned late (as per below). Overdue reminders will be sent out when items are overdue. A second reminder will be sent when the items are 5 weeks over due. Please ensure that items are returned on time so as to allow other children to benefit from them.

All items borrowed 6 weeks + : 5p a day (i.e. From the DUE DATE till up to 2 weeks late after that)
All items borrowed 8 weeks + : 10p a day (i.e. From 2 weeks late till 3 weeks late)
All items borrowed 9 weeks + : 20 a day (i.e. 3 weeks late onwards)
There is a maximum charge of only £10 in all late fee circumstances.

Online Features:
The website allows you to do the following things:

Reserve – You can reserve an item you are interested in by clicking on the relevant icon next to the title. This request will then be passed on to the Admin team who will e-mail you as soon as your item is available to be collected. Please do not reserve more than 4 items (we request that you do not reserve more than 1 game, CD or DVD at a time), in order to allow a fair distribution of materials among members. Once items have been reserved they will be available to be collected for 3 weeks, after which they will be returned to the shelf.

Renew – If you would like to renew your item for another 3 weeks, you may do so by clicking on the relevant icon next to the title. Please do not renew items more than once, in order to allow a fair distribution of materials among members.

Add review – If you would like to share your opinions on any of the items in the library, please do so by clicking on the relevant icon next to the title. Your review will be published online after approval from the Admin team. ;

Care of library property:
Please take care of library property and report damaged items before you borrow them. If you lose or damage an item, you will be asked to pay for a replacement. Please take special care with games, as pieces are easily lost.

Remember, the property you borrow is amanat, and you will be depriving others of benefiting from them if you damage it!

Caution:
A word of caution – although we have tried as much as possible to screen the items, some items may portray the beliefs of the Ahle-Sunnah. Please keep an eye out for this and explain these differences to your children. Maybe the start of dinner time discussions?!
