How do I renew my loaned item online?

  1. Go to the online library catalogue
  2. Click on My Account
  3. Login with your library card barcode. The barcode is located on the back of your card and starts with "W"
  4. Click on Loans
  5. Check the box next to the item that you wish to renew
  6. Click the renew loans button
  7. A message will appear to inform you of your successful renewal

If the process is unsucessful, please contact the library for assistance. Reasons for unsuccessful renewals may be:

  • too many renewals;
  • item is on reserve for another borrower; or
  • the item has been recalled.
