Reserving and renewing items

All items are now automatically renewed every three weeks. If your item has been reserved by another customer it cannot be renewed and you will receive a message asking you to return it.

Fines are currently suspended, but we would encourage you where possible, to return items to us after you have finished with them, so that others can borrow them. Items can be returned to any of the currently open libraries, Monday to Friday: 10:30am to 6pm, Saturday: 10:30am to 5pm and Sunday: 12pm to 5pm.

Please note:

  • items may be renewed up to a maximum of five times via our automated renewals service online and at any Brent or London Libraries Consortium (LLC) library.
  • renewals could be declined if the item is reserved by another customer.
  • after the maximum limit is reached, you will have to visit a library to renew the items.
  • searching the catalogue on our library app will only show books in Brent. Our members have access to a wider catalogue shared with lots of other London boroughs. You can search the full catalogue
