Here’s how to renew your items yourself

Log in to your account from our homepage:

If you don’t know your login and password, you can call the library or ask at the library’s circulation desk.

  • Your login might be your library card number. If there is a round sticker on the front of your card with a four digit number, try it for the password.
  • Staff can assign any combination of numbers or letters to be your login and password. Just let us know. You can change your password yourself once you are in your account.

After you have logged in, you will see a list of all the items you have checked out. If the item can be renewed, there will be a blue link on the right side of the screen:renew5

Or you can choose, at the bottom of the screen, to renew all of your items.renew6

**Please Note: Items that are overdue or on hold for another patron can’t be renewed online. You will need to call the library, 785-828-4520, and talk with one of the circulation staff.
