Your Library Card and Borrowing FAQs

Renewals

YPRL automatically renews any books twice, if you are signed up for EMAIL or SMS notifications.

If you have opted-in for EMAIL notifications, we will send you a courtesy email two days before your items are due. You can add or update your email address by logging into the website, going to the My Settings section and filling in the email address field.

If you have opted-in for SMS notification, we will send you a courtesy SMS 2 days before your items are due. You can add or update your mobile phone number by contacting or visiting your local library branch.

Reserving books

If an item is held at another library, or all the copies are on loan, you can request a ‘hold’ be placed so the item will come to you.

You can have 10 items on hold at a time, and keep track of what you have requested and where you are in the hold’s queue through your online account.

eLibrary

Using your library card number and PIN you can access or download a number of digital resources.
