All Palm Beach County Library System locations will be closed on Tue, Dec 24 and Wed, Dec 25 for Christmas. No materials will be due on these days.

Renewing Items

You can renew an item up to three (3) times, if no one is waiting to borrow it. DVDs may be renewed once (if there is no waiting list). You can renew materials online (MY ACCOUNT) or at any branch of the Library System. For online renewal, follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to the catalog
  2. Click MY ACCOUNT.
  3. Type in your library card number (the letter D followed by all numbers and no spaces; ex. d012345678) and your PIN (if not previously logged in).
  4. Click CHECKOUTS.
  5. Click the box to the left of the item(s) to renew, or click the SELECT ALL box.
  6. Click RENEW at top or bottom.
  7. Click YES to confirm you want to renew the selected item(s) or NO to cancel.
  8. The TIMES RENEWED counter will increment and a new DATE DUE will display if the item renewed. If the renewal failed, a message will appear below each item indicating why it could not be renewed. Contact the library if you have questions.

Renew by Phone

Renew Items By Phone. Don't have access to the internet or simply want to go "low tech?" You can now renew items you have on loan by using your telephone. It's simple. You only need your library card number and PIN.

Call 561.615.9538; press 2 to renew items.

Automatic Renewals

We now offer a 21-day loan period for all materials on library shelves. Those items will automatically renew up to three times if there are no holds.

This change will mean more reading time for you and be more convenient. Members who receive text and email notices will be notified when the item is renewed.
