Price of replacement on the date of damage

A scale of charges for other books and items which have been damaged or not returned has been adopted. Replacement by an identical new item is not permitted and will not be accepted in place of the charges shown above.

If the lost item should be found and returned by the user after he has paid the replacement charge, Lyon Municipal Library will refund the charge on condition that the item is returned to it within two months of the 29th day following the authorised lending period.

Administrative charges received for late returns will be kept by the library and will not be refunded back under any circumstances.
