Renewal and Holds 


Materials (except DVDs and new release books) may be renewed twice by phone or online from the library website catalog. To renew online, enter your 14-digit library barcode number (typed without spaces) and your PIN. (If you have never chosen a PIN, the default PIN is “CHANGEME”). Click on “My Account” and then “Renew My Materials.” Online renewals are blocked on accounts with large fines or more than four overdue items. Items on hold request by another patron may not be renewed. Holds for items currently checked out or at another OCPLC library may be placed online. Email notices for hold requests ready for pick-up are automatically sent out  from “ocplcinfo” if your email address is on file. Please note that the email is sent out before your requested item hits our shelves. You may wish to call before making a special trip to the library.
