How do I renew material?

Renewals can be done in person, on our website, by telephone or by leaving a message on our answering machine. Please note that we will not renew your library material unless asked to do so. If there is a hold on the material that you wish to renew, we will extend the due date but request that you return the item as soon as possible in consideration of the patron waiting for the material.

If you wish to renew an Interlibrary Loan, you must contact the library with your request at least 7 days before the item’s due date. Our staff will request a renewal from the lending library and telephone you with the results.

In exceptional circumstances, a patron can request an extended due date longer that the normal lending period. Please request an extended due date at the desk when you are checking out your material.  Your printout will reflect the extended lending period.

See our Catalogue Facts page to learn how to renew online.

Can I return material after hours?

A drop box is located beside the front door for your convenience. Material may be returned at anytime.

What material can I reserve?

All items may be reserved.

Please make requests at the desk or on our web site. Once an item you have on reserve is available, you will be contacted by telephone. The item will be held for pickup for 7 days. If you have not picked up the item within seven days, it will be passed on to the next person on the reserve list or re-shelved.

If you no longer need a reserve item, please advise the library as soon as possible.
