Most items are loaned for 21 days. A fine is incurred for each day that the item is overdue. Renew or return items before or on the date that they are due to be returned. You can check the dates your items are due for return in your library account. There are no fines for eBook and eAudio loans.

Renewing your loans

You can renew up to three times unless your items have been requested by another borrower. You can renew overdue books but existing fines will apply.

Ways to renew:

Please have your library card number with you, when you renew.

Why can’t I renew?

It is not always possible to renew your item:

  • online, if it has been renewed three times already - please bring the item into any library to renew
  • if it has been requested by another customer.

Returning your loans

All Warwickshire County Council Libraries are accepting returns during opening hours. No appointment required. 

Items borrowed from a Warwickshire Library can be returned to any other Warwickshire Library including the mobile libraries and community managed libraries.

Please check individual Community managed libraries for information about their current offer. 

Contact us if you have any account queries. 

Receive courtesy emails before your items are due for renewal or return

We notify you by email when your items are due for renewal or return if you have given us your email address. You can add and update your email address by logging into your library account – select ‘Personal data’ then ‘Change your details’.

Please note: failure to receive a courtesy email will not oblige your library to waive any overdue charges.
