You can renew items in person, by phone, or online.

To renew in person:

Bring your items and your library card to any Sonoma County Library branch.  You don't have to renew at the same branch where you checked the items out.

To renew by phone:

Call our automated system (TELECIRC) at 707-566-0281

To renew online:

Go to our website and click My Account to log in.

Click on Items Out to see the list of items you currently have checked out. Click in the box to the left of each item you want to renew, or click in the box to the top left of the entire list if you want to renew all the items. Then click the Renew button.

You may renew materials twice. After the end of the second renewal period, the item must be returned to the library.

E-books and Downloadable Audiobooks cannot be renewed.  If there are no requests on the e-book or downloadable audiobook, you can check it out and download it again. 

I renewed this item twice, but it's still due in only three weeks!

Do not try to renew an item multiple times in the same day to add more time to the check-out period. This does not work. Each time you renew an item, it becomes due 21 days (7 days for most DVDs) from the date you renew it -- not from the original due date. If you renew an item twice in the same day, it doesn't renew for double the time -- it simply takes you to the maximum number of renewals.
