How do I ... Renew a book?
In addition to renewing your books in person at your local library, you may renew your books and other materials by telephone or online.
Library System of Lancaster County 24-Hour Telephone Renewal Service
To renew materials or get more details on your library account, dial 717-394-1721, then press the following keys:
Press 1 to renew materials
Enter your 14-digit barcode number for individual items. For all materials on your record, Press #. If the item is overdue, appropriate fines will be attached to your record. Items will be due two weeks from today's date.
NOTE: Not all items can be renewed with the Telephone Renewal System. Some reasons an item may not be renewed are: another borrower has requested the item; that type of material is not eligible for renewal; you already renewed the item once; or, because of overdue fines on your record.
When this service is unavailable, items must be brought to your local library for renewal. Fines will be charged for overdue material.
