Can I renew library items?

You can renew items by phone, in the library, or online using your library card and password/PIN.
Renewing an item renews it for its original loan period.  For pay collections such as CDs, DVDs, and talking books, the original loan charge to borrow the item may apply when renewing.
For example, if you borrow a DVD for 7 days and are charged a fee, you need to pay the same fee again to have it renewed.

Items can be renewed once. If other customers are waiting for the item it cannot be renewed.

To renew online:

  • Go to Log In / My Account from the website
  • Enter your library card number and password/PIN to log in
  • Go to the Checked Out link. Select any items you wish to renew and click Renew. A popup message will let you know if your renewal was successful.

If you keep an item past the due date, you will need to pay an overdue fine when you return it.

Youth customers (under 19 years) do not pay overdue fines on most items.

More information about overdue charges is available on the Fees and Charges page or you could contact us.

Items obtained via interlibrary loan can be renewed in most cases. Please ring the library before your interlibrary loan is due back to arrange this. An interlibrary loan can be renewed only once.
