Due dates can be extended by requesting a renewal before the item becomes overdue. To renew library materials:

  • Log in to your account on the library’s website, Select “Items currently checked out” to view and renew library items.
  • Or email (Brooklyn) or (Manhattan).
  • Or call 718-636-3420 (Brooklyn) or 212-647-7546 (Manhattan).
  • Or ask in person at the Circulation desk.

Renewals may not be granted if:

  • The borrower has unpaid fines exceeding $10 or suspended borrowing privileges.
  • The items are needed for Course Reserves or by another borrower.


Borrowed items may be recalled by the Libraries before the due date set by the standard loan period. Borrowers will be notified one week before the new due date and will be charged $1 for each day past the new due date that the recalled item is not returned.
