Renewal Policy

Library materials may be renewed for an additional loan period if they are not on reserve for another patron. The items may be renewed at the circulation desk, by phone, or on the library web site with a patron pin number. The first renewal may be done without the material being present. For subsequent renewals, the item must be physically brought in to the library. Renewal of library materials will stop fines on the day of the renewal but the patron will be responsible for overdue fines accrued up to the renewal.

Multiple renewals will be at the discretion of library staff dependant on condition of materials, demand, and number of renewals.

In the case of interlibrary loan materials, the patron must notify Bladen County Public Library well in advance of the due date so that a renewal request can be made to the lending library.
