Borrowing and Renewing

How many books may I borrow at one time?

There is no limit to the number of items you may borrow at any given time. Loan Periods and Late Fees are shown at the bottom of this page. Please remember that fines will be incurred if the loan period is exceeded.

How long may I keep a borrowed book or material?

Loan Periods for books and materials vary and are shown at the bottom of this page. Loan Periods for books and materials borrowed from other libraries are subject to the loan periods established by that library. Please check your receipt for the correct loan period.

How do I renew a book?

You may renew a book one of three ways:
1. You may stop in at the library with or without the book you want to renew. Our staff will look up your account and renew the loan period for you.
2. You may call the library at (215) 679-2020 and request renewal of the book.
3. You may go online to the MCLINC website by clicking on the link below or on the 'My Account' icon on the menu above to renew the book directly from your patron account.

DVDs may no longer be renewed online or over the phone as there is an additional $1 charge for the additional 7 day rental period.
