How do I renew an item I have checked-out?

Renewing an item extends its due date. You can renew many items up to two times, as long as no one else is waiting to check it out.

There are four ways to renew your items:


  1. Click on "My Account"
  2. Enter your library card number and PIN
  3. Click on "Checkouts" and view Library Checkouts
  4. Use the checkbox to select the items you'd like to renew and click "Renew Selected Items"
  5. You will receive a confirmation if the renewal is successful, or a message if the item(s) could not be renewed

Call (719) 531-6333, x3920 to renew your items using the automated phone line. You will need your library card number.

Text Message
If you are signed up to receive text messages from the Library, you can reply to the Reminder Notice text to renew items noted in the text message. Click here for more details.

In Person
Visit any Library and renew your items in person. You will either need the items or your library card to use this method.


How do you renew digital books? can you? I can select the book, but I don't see any 'renew' button. perhaps the above help needs to be updated so it applies to both physical and electronic checkouts.

Renewing digital titles works a little differently than renewing physical books from the library. When you renew a digital title, it doesn't extend your lending period; instead, it lets you borrow the title again immediately after your current checkout expires.

The Renew option becomes available three days before a title is set to expire and appears next to the title on your Checkouts page (under your Account). If the title already has holds, you can't renew it, but you can request it again.

You must sign in to Overdrive through the Cybershelf to get to this digital checkout page I'm referring to. It is not the same PPLD account that shows your address and fines along with your checkouts.

If you have anymore questions you can contact the Cyber desk at Library 21c at (719) 884-9800 x6300

Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to return a kindle ebook other than just letting the time expire.
