Telephone Renewal

To renew materials or get more details on your library account, dial 717-394-1721, then press the following keys:

Press 1 to renew materials

Enter your 14-digit barcode number for individual items. For all materials on your record, Press #. If the item is overdue, appropriate fines will be attached to your record. Items will be due two weeks from today’s date.

NOTE: Not all items can be renewed with the Telephone Renewal System. Some reasons an item may not be renewed are: another borrower has requested the item; that type of material is not eligible for renewal; you already renewed the item once; or, because of overdue fines on your record.

When this service is unavailable, items must be brought to your local library for renewal. Fines will be charged for overdue material.
