Renew an Item

What if I am not finished with something when it is due?

You can renew most items. Renewal requests can be made in person, online, or on the phone.

  • When you call, please have the library card number ready. 
  • You can access the library's My Account feature to log in and renew online. You'll need the library card number and pin number for the account.
  • Most items can be renewed two times if no one else has a hold on the item. 
  • Magazines and equipment only renew one time. 
  • Express items don't renew. 
  • You need to renew your items by the due date to avoid late fees. 
  • If you need more time with items borrowed through inter-library loan, please call (319-753-1647) We will need to contact the lending library to extend the loan.
