Hi Alyson,

A book may be renewed twice, each time for an additional three weeks, provided there are no holds on the item.  Items that have a hold are not renewable.  Renew items in person, by accessing your account online, or by telephoning 303-441-3100. You will need your library card number to renew items.

Prospector items are not eligible for renewal using the automated telephone renewal system. Please call the number above or stop by the Main library, or the Meadows or Reynolds branch libraries during business hours if you are unable to renew Prospector items online.

Please give us a call at 303-441-3194 if you have any questions.

Josie Brockmann, Reference specialist
