Renewing and extending your library loans

Renew your books online

Use your library card number and 4 digit PIN to log in to your library account and renew your loans.

If you don't yet have a 4 digit PIN (Personal Identification Number), ask for one next time you are in the library.

You can also renew items on the library app, by phone, email or in person at any library. Please have your library card with you.

Hire charges apply for the renewal of dvds, cds and audio books. Please note there are no hire charges for audiobooks downloaded via Library2go.

If you are having trouble renewing your items online this may be because

  • they would incur a fine of more than £1 per item
  • the item has been requested by another user
  • the renewal limit, 3 times, has been reached
  • your membership is coming up for renewal.

E-books and e-audiobooks can be renewed on Overdrive and Oneclickdigital
