How do I renew items?

You have many options for renewing items.


  • Via your online account
  • Via the library's mobile app
  • By auto-renewal at 614-839-2070
  • By phone at 614-882-7277 ext. 2
  • At the Circulation Desk inside the library's main entrance

*Items checked out through SearchOhio or OhioLINK cannot be renewed via the auto-renewal system. To renew these items, please log into your online account or contact the library at 614-882-7277 ext. 2.


  • You can renew items up to 4 times, unless another patron has requested it or if your library card has a fine of over $5.00.*
  • When a renewal is successful, the new due date will be exactly one loan period from the current date. If an item’s renewal was unsuccessful, you must bring the item back by the original due date in order to avoid fines.
  • If you renewed an item after its original due date, you will be assessed a fine for the days between the due date and the day you renewed the item.
  • If your library card account's expiration date is before the item’s due date, the due date for the item will be set as your expiration date. To extend the expiration date for your library card account, please call 614-882-7277 ext. 2 in order to verify your contact information.

*Items requested through SearchOhio or OhioLINK can only be renewed up to 3 times. Wi-fi hotspots are ineligible for renewal. Limits also exist for educator cards.
