Borrowing and renewing items

As a member of Redland libraries, you have access to a wide range of resources.

Visit one of our libraries or go online to the Library Catalogue

Borrowing

Members can borrow up to 20 items for four weeks. This can be any combination of format, i.e. books, CDs, DVDs, magazines.

No overdue fines are charged. However, if items are overdue you won't be able to borrow further items until this has been resolved.

Renewing loan items

You can renew a loan item once. However, if somebody else has requested that item you will not be able to renew it.

You can renew an item by:

  • visiting or telephoning any of our libraries
  • going online to the Library Catalogue, log on to 'my account' (top right of screen) and you'll find all your loans listed under the 'checkouts' tab.

Placing a hold

You can place a hold on any item - either at one of our libraries, or in your account on the Library Catalogue.

When the item is available you will receive notification for collecting. This is a free service.

Requesting an item

If the item you are looking for is not in the Library Catalogue you can request an interlibrary loan

We are always interested in suggestions for new items. If an item is not in the Library Catalogue‚Äč please suggest a purchase.
