How do I renew my items?
You can extend your existing loans by visiting, calling or emailing a library.
You can also renew your items online using the library catalogue:
- Select the "Renew your loans" icon on the library homepage and you'll be prompted to enter your library card number and 4-digit PIN.
- Select the checkouts tab to see your list of loans.
- To renew all loans, check the box next to "Select All" and select renew.
When you renew your books you will be given a new return date. An item can be renewed up to 8 times before it must be returned to the library. Please note that if another borrower requires the item and has placed a request on it, it cannot be renewed and you will be responsible for returning the item and the cost of any overdue fines.
Renew via the Apple App
A Falkirk Libraries app [link to new Falkirk Libraries Apple App page], which allows you to renew and request items, is available for Apple products.
Pre-overdue reminder emails
If you tell us your email address we can send you emails 3 days before your items are due for return. Ask a member of staff about this next time you are in the library.
