Renewing Materials

You may renew most materials twice unless someone is waiting for an item. There are three ways to renew materials – in person, by telephone, and online. When you renew, please have your library card in front of you and the barcode of the item(s) to be renewed. For telephone renewals, please call (860) 224-3155 ext. 110. Express books are not renewable. Certain interlibrary loans are not renewable by phone.
