What does it mean to renew library materials?

Renewing materials will allow you to keep the materials you have checked-out longer. You can easily renew many items using the steps below to keep items longer and avoid late fines.

How to renew library materials

  • In person, at any library location.
  • By phone at 1.855.980.7457 (SILS) or by phoning any location.
  • Online through My SPL.

A few important points about renewals:

  • If an item has been requested by someone else, it cannot be renewed.
  • Overdue items can still be renewed and this will stop further late charges.
  • Items cannot be renewed if you have more than $10 owing in late charges.
