Renew My Books

Renewing Materials


You may renew items for two additional loan periods if no other library users have reserved the item. All other borrowing policies apply to renewals. If there are reserves on the item, it may not be renewed. 

Renew at the Library


To renew an item in person, the user should bring the items to be renewed to the check-out desk. If the items are not present, they may still be renewed by presenting a library card with the items on it to a staff member. A printed receipt with the new due date will be given at that time.

Additionally, renewal is now possible in person at one of our new self-check machines as well. Simply select the Renew option, scan your card, and set all items down on the pad. Renewal is also possible if you do not have the items with you by selecting My Account and scanning your card, highlighting the items on your account that you would like to extend, and selecting the renew option. If further help is required, our desk staff would be happy to assist.

Renew Online


To renew an item using NC Cardinal, login to your account under My Account on the NC Cardinal home page. You can access the catalog on any public computer in the library or by accessing your account online. Log in with your library account number and PIN number to renew items. You should note the new due date. Due dates can be checked at any time using My Account in NC Cardinal. For more help on using NC Cardinal to renew your books, checkout how to use My Library Account.

Renew by Telephone


You can renew items by telephone using the library's automated telephone system by calling 704-928-2014. Please have your library card number available, as well as the titles of all items to be renewed.
