John’s fresher owes almost £100 library fine since Easter

What is she doing in the library?


In the last two years, the beloved Billy B has made a ridiculous £237,956.89 on our overdue books, but who has racked up the biggest fine in Durham?

John’s first year Grace Gibson has managed to accumulate a massive £95 library fine since the Easter holiday alone.

The Natural Science fresher took out two books over Easter, which she was unable to renew because she had already hit the maximum limit.

Grace told The Tab: “It’s insane. I owe £95 supposedly, I think they may think I’ve lost them. They’re literally just normal books, not even short loan! I’m hoping that they’re charging me for the price of the books so when I give them back, it won’t be so high. Might be wishful thinking.

“The books were good, but no library books are worth £95.”
