3. Reading period and reading fee

JustBooks proposes a reasonable reading period with a restriction on the number of books that a member can hold at any point in time. No penalty will be levied for delayed return of books. However, under specific circumstances where other library members have requested for and are waiting for a book/s for more than 10 days, JustBooks reserves the right to contact and request members holding book/s to be returned. Members are requested to then return the requested book/s within five (5) days of such request. Reading fees should be paid as per the plan.

All correspondence in this regard will be communicated to the email address of the member as submitted in the application form. Members are requested to update their contact details periodically when changed. Reading fee paid in advance will not be refunded.

4. Lost or Damaged books

At JustBooks, we take utmost care to maintain books in good condition. Any anomaly (unprinted pages) of damage if found should be reported either at the front desk while getting the book issued or to the delivery executive if the book is delivered at the door. Failure to check and/or report the same will be constituted as if the member has received a book in good condition. While returning the book, The front desk executive or the deliver executive (if the book is collected at the door) will check for any damage of book(s) and report to the member accordingly. The determination of a book being “damaged” will be at the sole discretion of JustBooks. Members can choose to replace a lost or damaged book within 10 days or pay the penalty amount determined by Just Books. The damage policy is detailed below.

Fine damage or torn page of any other book 60% of the cost of the book
Jacket or RFID tag missing Rs. 30
Magazine damage of any kind 50% cost of the magazine

5. Membership closure & refund of deposit

To discourage ad-hoc and short term membership, members are required to comply with a minimum membership term of three months. For members who subscribe to plans with a refundable deposit, any premature closure of membership in less than three months from the date of sign-up, will result in the reading fee for the remaining period of the mandatory term getting adjusted against the deposit. The rest of the deposit, however will be refunded. For members who subscribe to annual plans without deposit there is no refund applicable at the time of closure. Under extreme situations caused by non-compliance to the Terms of Use by member, JustBooks clc reserves the right to terminate a membership for any or no reason without any refund.

6. Unclaimed Refundable Deposit

Upon expiry of membership, JustBooks sends reminders over emails/sms to its members for renewal. Three months after expiry, JustBooks reserves the right to classify the account as ‘Dormant’ and initiate steps to recover cost of books and any unpaid reading fee from the refundable deposit, if there is no action on the reminders, which would be communicated to the member through email/sms. Post this recovery, any excess deposit left in the account will be retained as “Unclaimed” refundable deposit for a period of 3 months and periodic reminders would be sent to the member to claim the same. After 12 months of expiry of membership, JustBooks reserves the right to treat the member as “not reachable” and take appropriate action on the unclaimed refundable deposit if there has been no response from the member on the reminder communications.

7. Definition of a BOOK

Since the reading fee is a flat rate and is not linked to the number of books read in a period, it is important to note that each title catalogued in JustBooks gets the same treatments irrespective of size, cost & target reader. Children’s books are treated the same way as other books.

8. Membership Card

Each member of JustBooks will get a RFID based membership card. No transaction at the library will be allowed without this card. Reporting a loss of card or rending a card unfit for use through willful/intentional or unintentional means will attract a replacement cost of Rs.100/- per card. Multiple cards for the same number can be obtained by paying an amount for Rs.100/- per extra card.

9. Temporary suspension of membership

Through a feature called “Subscription Holiday”, JustBooks allows the member to pause the membership (temporary suspension), for a duration of 1 month, 2 months or 3 months before expiration of membership. During Subscription Holiday period, a member will not be able to use the library. To utilise this feature, a member is required to fill up the Subscription Holiday Form either at the branch or online. All issued books and magazines should be returned to the JustBooks branch before the start date of Subscription Holiday. Members who pay for Yearly and Half-yearly terms will receive free Subscription Holidays of 2 months and 1 month respectively, and are required to pay Rs. 50/- per month there after.
