Library materials may be renewed 2 times, as long as there is no pending request for the material. Our system will automatically renew eligible materials.
Materials that can’t be renewed are: “Most Wanted” books, Evanston Wi-Fi Hotspots, and Interlibrary Loan materials. Library renewals are not permitted if you have a fine of $10 or more.
Call (847) 590-8706 to renew by phone. You will be welcomed to the renewal system and asked to enter your library card number.
