Renewing Library Materials

All patrons are allowed to renew circulating materials twice, unless someone else has requested the item.  Renewals may be done online, in person at the library, or by emailing

A renewal limit is in place to ensure that our collection remains accessible for borrowing and research by all library users, as well as to protect library materials from damage and loss.

To renew items patrons must have a Library Account set up. To renew online:


  • Select the down arrow next to your name.
  • Select "My Account" and your account details will appear.
  • Select "Renew" to received your new due date

If you need assistance with this process, please email
