Library fines amnesty

To support library users during the cost of living crisis, from 1 January to 28 February 2023, we will be offering a fines amnesty. Find out how you can get your past or current library fines cleared.

Renew a library loan

To renew a library book or item, you will need your library card number and PIN.

You will not be able to renew an item if:

  • it has been reserved by another customer
  • you are an adult who has more than £10 in overdue charges
  • the item is more than 60 days overdue

If you have renewed an item online 4 times, you'll need to bring the item into a library to renew it.

Renew a loan

You can also renew a loan by:

  • going to a library
  • calling our automated renewal line on 0303 123 0035
