    No, you don’t have to visit the library to renew a book although we are always happy to see you! Items are set to auto-renew up to 5 times as long as there are not requests for them. Hotspots and Connectivity Kits do not auto-renew.

    You can check the status of your materials by going to the library website and logging into your account using your library card number and the last 4-digits of your phone number. Also, from within the 805 area code, you can call 800-354-9660 and follow the automated instructions.  You will need your library card number to use the system.  Of course, you can call us and talk to a real person during library business hours at 805-525-3615 and press Option 3.
