Library books - Renew an item

You can renew a library book online.
Enter your Barcode and PIN to logon and renew your loans and/or reserve items online
Anyone can browse the library catalogue online, however, if you wish to reserve or renew an item you must become a library member.

Borrowing/renewing items

You may borrow up to 10 books or audio books at any one time for a period of 3 weeks.

The loan period can be extended providing an item has not been requested by another reader. Renewals for charged items will gain a new charge.

Loans may be renewed by either visiting your local library or up to three times by using the online catalogue or by telephoning your local library prior to the date stamped for return.

If you do not return or renew items by the date stamped on them, you will have to pay an overdue charge - see our Fees and Charges page for current rates.
