Renew Your Items

You may renew your books up to three times if they have not been requested by another borrower.

Books can be renewed online through your WRLC Library Account, by selecting the "view" box for Georgetown. They can also be renewed by phone at (202) 687-7607, in person at the Circulation Desk, or by responding to the electronic overdue notice.

Fines will accrue on all materials renewed three days or more beyond the listed due date.
