how do I renew a book?
There are two ways to renew an item without being physically present at a library branch. The first way is to call any branch location during the hours of operation. A clerk will be more than happy to assist you in renewing items. Simply provide the clerk with the library card number for the account that you wish to renew items. Additional questions may be asked to further assist you.
The second way is to renew online with your User ID (your complete 14 digit library card number) and PIN. If you do not have your PIN, it can be retrieved by visiting any HMCPL branch.
