How do I renew items on my account?

The library currently has automatic renewals on most items.  As long as the library account is in good standing, items that have not reached the maximum number of renewals or have a wait list will automatically renew for an extra checkout period .

To renew your materials online, click on Login (upper right-hand corner of the screen)and enter your 14 digit library card number found underneath the barcode on your card and your password/pin. Click Checkouts to open the list of items on your account. Click the boxes next to the items you wish to renew and click the renew button .

To renew by phone, call (507) 304-4010. We cannot access your account without your library card number, so have your card handy.

To renew by email, send your request to, give us your library card number and lets us know what you wish to renew. You can also reply to any notice sent by e-mail with your request.
