How to Renew

You can renew library materials online or by telephone.  Most items are eligible for a maximum of four renewals if other library users are not waiting to use the materials.

Online Renewals

Log into your patron account, click your username in the top right corner of the screen, click on Checked Out, and then click on the Renew button for any titles you want to renew.

Telephone Renewals

Call the Telephone Renewal number, (503) 846-3245, to hear library and account information, and to renew items by telephone.  You may quit your telephone session or hang up at any time.

You will be asked for your library barcode (account ID) and password to access your:

  • activity summary
  • items out
  • overdue items
  • requests
  • items currently being held
  • account statement

Please be aware certain conditions will block renewals:

  • Someone has requested that item
  • You have long overdue items
  • You need to renew your library account
  • Your account has been sent to a collection agency
