Renew Your Items Online

If no one else has a hold on your item, you can renew it online through our online catalog. If you forget to renew or return your item, the fine will be 15 cents a day for each one.

Auto Renewal Now Available: Eligible library materials will automatically renew on the DUE DATE. Library materials without holds that are eligible for renewal, with the exception of ebooks and eaudiobooks, will be renewed automatically up to the limit of the Lending Regulations Policy. To receive notifications, please make sure your account has an email address listed. An email address may be added to your library account online or by Patron Services staff. Renewable items will still renew, but without an email listed you will need to check your library account manually to know the current due date.

Borrowing Limits

DVDs and Blu-Rays have a combined limit of 15 per card, and videogames are limited to 10 at a time, but with the rest of our 270,000 items, we are able to let you check out as many things as you want.

Hot Picks Collection

If you are interested in getting a very popular book or DVD, check our Hot Picks Collection in the Commons area. Because this collection is so popular, it is reserved for Niles cardholders, and no one can place holds on these items.
