Renew & View Items
*AS OF 5/3/2021 RETURNED ITEMS WILL BE QUARANTINED FOR 24 hours. We ask that you wait three days after you have returned items before you contact us about any item still listed on your account. At that time we will be more than happy to investigate.
Baldwin Public Library now uses an automatic renewal system. If your account is in good standing, eligible items, including MeL loans, will automatically be renewed three days before they are due*. If you are signed up for email and/or text notifications, you will be sent a confirmation of this renewal with your new due date(s). Please read the notification carefully, as it will also list any item that has not been renewed.
Four renewals are permitted for all card holders on all Baldwin materials except Hot Picks, Launchpads, and Youth Holiday DVDs. Any item on hold for another patron is not available for renewal. You may renew your library materials online, in person, or by phone.
- To renew online at any time, you will need your library card number and your password (most likely the last four digits of the phone number on your account). Once you are logged in, you can also view your checkouts, holds, and general account information.
- To renew during library hours by phone, call 248-554-4630. Please have your library card number ready when you call. If you do not have your library card number, we can give only limited information about renewals and your account in general.
- Please note that for Reciprocal card holders, there is an additional $2.00 charge for each videogame renewal.
*items are renewed according to the date due, not the date of the automatic renewal
Regarding MeL items: One renewal is allowed for items that circulate for 4 weeks, but there are no renewals for items that circulate for two weeks. MeL loan periods are set by the lending libraries, not by Baldwin.
