Renewals

If your book is due back but you’re not quite finished, you can renew it, as long as no one has placed a hold for it in which case a message will appear saying that you are unable to renew as there are holds.

Renewals will be for the same length as the borrowing period (e.g. if you borrowed the book for two weeks, you can renew it for two weeks).

To renew a book, log in to the library catalogue using your library card and pin number, click on ‘My Account’, then click on Checkouts. Select which items you would like renewed and click on Renew.

You can also email, phone or visit the library to renew your books.
