Automatic Renewals

Starting September 3rd, the North Branford Public Libraries are implementing automatic renewals. If an item is not on hold for another patron, eligible North Branford items will automatically renew before their due date, up to two times. You can now enjoy your materials for a longer period of time without the worry of being late.

We recommend checking your account at: or calling the Library as the due date approaches to be sure the item is renewable.

The following Loan Periods apply:

New Books
have a 2-week borrowing period

Books, Audiobooks & Music CDs
have a 3-week borrowing period

Large Print & New Large Print Books
have a 3-week borrowing period

DVDs & Magazines
have a 1-week borrowing period

All Children’s Materials
have a 3-week borrowing period

Items will not renew if:

  • There is a hold on the item
  • The item has reached its maximum allowable renewals (2)
  • The library account is blocked because it has expired or has overdue fees that exceed $20.00 or one BILLED item
