Borrowing, Fines, Renewals & Returns

Renewing Materials

If your items are not on hold for another customer, they will be renewed automatically, up to three times. To renew by phone, call the automated Telephone Renewal Line at 419.521.3117. Use the regular phone number for your local library to renew materials at a branch location.

To renew online, you will need a Personal Identification Number (PIN). You can register for a PIN by phone or in person at any Library location

Choose the Account Login link at the top of any page on this website. You will be asked for your Library card number and PIN number. Enter those in the appropriate boxes. When you are logged in, click on Items currently checked out. Check the box next to the items you wish to renew, then click on the Renew button at the top or bottom of the screen. If the items you choose cannot be renewed, you will get a message telling you that.

You will need your library card number to renew by any method.


Holds/reserves may be placed on all library materials except:
3-day DVDs (Standard & Blu-Ray)

Library materials may be returned to any M/RCPL location, regardless of where they were borrowed. Drop boxes are available at all locations; however, a few items cannot be returned in drop boxes and must be returned in person to any location.
