Renew My Materials

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option


Most library materials can be renewed twice.  Items that have holds ("requests") placed on them by other patrons cannot be renewed.  You cannot renew items if you have overdue fines totaling more than $25, if you have materials that are more than 21 days overdue, or if activity has been blocked on your account.

Please remember that renewal of overdue items will generate fines.  If fines exceed the limit of $25, borrowing privileges are suspended until the fine balance is brought below the limit. Please contact Library staff for more information.

There are four ways to renew borrowed materials.  You may renew online, over the telephone, through the Library App, or in person. 

Library materials may be renewed online using the My Account link from the Library Catalog.  When renewing items online, all items eligible for renewal will have a check box next to them.  To renew specific items, click in the boxes to select each item, then click on "Renew Selected Items."
Library App

Library materials may be renewed through the Library App. You can get more information about our App here.

In person

Library materials may be renewed in person at any of Torrance Public Library's six locations.

To renew by phone, including hours when the Library is closed, telephone 310-618-2785 and select option 1 for the Library's automated features from a touch-tone phone.  You must have your Library card number and PIN (the last four digits of the telephone number you provided to the Library when you registered).
