Renewing Materials

All items are renewable 2 times. Renewal due dates are calculated from the date of the renewal.

Renewing Online
You can renew items online through the Library Web Catalog by logging into your account using your library card bar code number (beginning with 22766) and your PIN. A default PIN of 1111 was assigned to your account when it was created, but if you have trouble logging in, contact the circulation desk at 703-248-5031. If your online renewals are successful you will receive an automatic confirmation. If some items failed to renew, call the circulation desk at 703-248-5031.
