If you want to renew your items, you have several ways to do so:
  • The online library catalog. This is the easiest way to renew your items at any time.
  • Automated phone service. Call 623-930-3600 at any time and press option one. Have your library card barcode and PIN number ready.
  • In person. Visit any Glendale Public Library location during regular operating hours. You can use our self-check machines or come to the Ask Here Desk.
If you have already renewed an item five times, or if the item has been requested by another patron, you will not be able to renew the item. Magazines, Culture Passes and Discovery and Exploration Backpacks cannot be renewed.

The Glendale Public Library does not offer automatic renewals. It is your responsibility to know your due dates and renew your items if necessary.


Grace Period

Items are due back to the library on their due date.  However, there is a grace period of 2 days.  If your items are returned within two days of their due date, no fines will be charged.  Items returned 3 days after their due date will have all fines charged from the original due date. 


The library will attempt to notify you by text or email when items are coming due, over due, or are being held for you.  These notifications are a courtesy and the library is not responsible for late or non-delivery of notices.  It is your responsibility to monitor your account.  

Overdue notices are sent 2 weeks after an item is overdue.  Please make sure the library has your most recent contact information.
