2. Fines/Amount blocking account:

Before:
£5.01 blocked your account and prevented you from
a) renewing a book which is overdue
and
b) borrowing any other book.

Since 20 April 2015:
Increase amount to £6.01; this means if an UG forgets to renew 6 books, s/he will be able
to renew them late, but only if s/he remembers soon(er rather than later).
