How to renew items

To renew items:

  • go to our online library catalogue, go to your account and renew
  • come into one of our libraries
  • phone your local library

You can renew or return items at any library in Bracknell Forest. We can usually renew your loans if nobody else has requested them.

Loans may be renewed only twice.

Email reminders

Due to an ICT upgrade, library members are currently unable to receive email reminders about the date their books are due back and overdue loans. To check and renew your loans go to our online library catalogue or email Bracknell Library at
