You'll need your library card number when you ring. You'll be

In person library renewals: You don't have to
bring the items back to the library when you want to renew
them. We will ask to see them after a few renewals, just to check
them. If somebody else has reserved an item we will ask you to
return it so that they can have it.
Library loans that can't be renewed
- Loans from the Best Sellers Collection need to be brought
back to the library. You may be able to borrow them again
immediately, depending on demand.

- Reference books.
- You can renew a loan 5 times. Once you've reached
that limit you'll need to bring the items back to the library
for checking. You may be able to borrow them again immediately,
depending on demand.
