How do I renew library materials?
With the exception of videos and DVDs, materials belonging to the Bay County Library System can be renewed a maximum of two times, provided they have not been requested by another patron. New materials can only be renewed once. Items borrowed from other libraries are subject to their circulation policies. You can renew items in person, online, or by calling any of the branches. To renew online, go into our Library Catalog, and click on “My Account.” Type in your library card number (without the A or B) and PIN, then renew your items. If you call, you will be asked for the title(s) and your library card number. Renewal of items borrowed through the Michigan Electronic Library Catalog (MeLCat) varies depending on the loaning library. In many cases, they may be renewed if within 7 days of the due date.
