Managing your loans

You can renew your items online, by telephone or in person at a branch. You can renew items up to four times, for three weeks each time (provided the items are not required for request).

A first overdue notice will be sent 7 days after the item is due back; the second will be 14 days after the item is due back.



Requests (Holds)

If a title is unavailable you may request it (what we call putting a 'hold' on it) by logging in to your account online and clicking on Request it. As you have access to titles in all the public libraries in Ireland you can request these too and not just Kildare stock. If an item does not appear on our catalogue you can fill out a request form in your local branch with as many bibliographic details as possible (ISBN, title, author, publisher etc.) and our Acquistions will try and get it for you.
