You can renew most items (up to a maximum of 3 times) in person or by telephone at any library, or by using the online option.
To renew an item online you will need your borrower card and PIN. You can use the renew option which is part of the Quicklinks option at the top of each page or use the link provided on this page.
If you have forgotton your PIN there will be an option to request a new one as long as we have a record of your email address.
Don't forget that you can use self-service kiosks at a number of Birmingham libraries. They are a quick and easy way to manage your library account!
Once items become overdue, it is not possible to renew them online because you have money owing in your account.
