How to renew books

Renewing your loans

You can renew your items three times

  • By telephoning 0151 291 2000 during full service hours
  • By using the self-service machines
  • Via My Account on the library catalogue:
    • Enter your borrower number, which is your ID number, including the last digit (usually a 1), with no spaces or dash and your PIN number. Your PIN  number can be obtained from the Library Help Points or by email:
    • The screen will show all your current loans. From here you can select 'Renew all' or 'Renew' for individuals items.

 Items can be renewed, but if another user has requested an item you have borrowed you will be given a shorter renewal period.

By using the renewal systems available you can keep your loans up to date and avoid incurring fines.


Can someone else renew items for me?

In exceptional circumstances such as sickness you can arrange for another person to borrow or renew items on your account. However to ensure that we are abiding by Data Protection legislation you MUST give them a signed letter of authorisation as well as your ID card as this will then authorise us to disclose information from your account to them.
