Can you remind me when my library loans are due?

Reminders are sent out to everyone three weeks after the due date by post or email. Phone or visit any branch to renew items.

You can log in to see the status of your loans on the 'renew items' tab of the online library catalogue.

If you have trouble remembering when the items you have borrowed are due back you might want to register with Library Elf. They are a private company who will send you out an alert reminding you to return or renew your items.
