How can I renew my materials?
Last Updated: Oct 09, 2019     Views: 149

Library owned material eligible for renewal may be renewed in person, by phone, or online.  You may also request renewals by email at  Overdue items may not be renewed until items are returned and all fines paid.  Items are not eligible for renewal if a hold has been placed by another patron or if the renewal limit has been reached.  Only one renewal is allowed on most library owned material. 

When renewing in person, you do not need to have the items present.  Just visit the Help Desk and ask to have your items renewed. 

To renew by phone, call 903.566.7342.
