books to loan and renewYou guys! From Sunday July 1 you might notice some differences when you issue, renew or return items at Wellington City Libraries.

The issue period for books is changing to three weeks – and you will soon be able to renew (for free!!) each item once for another three weeks, if no one else has placed a reserve.

If you’re renewing a YA or Children’s DVD you’ll just need to pay another 80c rental fee to keep it for another week, very handy for some of those longer box sets!

You will have two more days after items become due, before we start charging overdue fees.

Renewing items is easy – you can either renew them online by checking your library card at or ask a staff member at your local library.

If you have any questions about these changes and how they’ll affect the items you take out of the library most regularly, please email us at or ask at your local library.
