How to replace a lost, stolen or damaged Reader Pass

To replace a Reader Pass, come to Reader Registration on the Upper Ground Floor at St Pancras.

A stolen Reader Pass will be replaced free of charge on production of evidence that it has been stolen, e.g. a police crime report or insurance document.

You must provide appropriate identification and proof of address; we cannot issue a Reader Pass without this.

There is a £10.00 charge to replace a lost or damaged pass. Refunds cannot be given if the original pass is subsequently found. The repeated loss of a pass may result in the right of registration being withdrawn.
