WNPL is fine-free. Due dates still apply and WNPL expects items returned in a timely manner. Borrowing privileges are suspended when library materials are two weeks overdue when checked out from the main library and six weeks overdue when checked out from the Bookmobile.

*Any library item with a hold is not renewable.

There are two ways to renew your library materials from outside the library. When using either method, please have your library card number (found on the back of your library card) available.

Renew your materials online:

  • Website: If you have not logged into our catalog yet, please do so by clicking on “My Account” on the upper right-hand corner of the library web site, or if, you are already in the catalog, by clicking on “Login” on the upper right-hand corner of the catalog main page (or, you may go directly from this page to the account login screen). You will be asked to login with your full library card number and PIN. If you have not yet established a PIN, try using your seven-digit phone number without the area code (Please note that you must use the phone number that WNPL has on file for you). Once you have logged in, click on Checkouts on the left-hand side to see a list of items checked out on your library account. Click on “Renew All” to renew all items, or select certain items for renewal by clicking in the check box next to the title, then click on “Renew Marked”.
  • Mobile app: Download the Warren-Newport Public Library app for Apple devices or Android devices. Select “My Account”, then “My bookshelf” to find a list of items checked out on your library account. Choose “Renew all” to renew all items, or select “Renew” for each individual title.

Renew your materials by phone: Staff are happy to help you renew library materials and can also provide information on outstanding items, due dates, and fees. For assistance, call 847-244-5150 during library hours and press 1 when prompted. Please have your library card number ready.

Please note: Any material with a hold placed on it may not be renewed. Browsing Collection materials (“Hot Picks” books and “Hot Flicks” DVDs) may not be renewed. All other materials, including feature film DVDs, may be renewed three (3) times unless the material has a hold placed on it.
