Renew Your Books

You can renew an existing loan that has not been reserved for another member by submitting the below form to us. Alternatively you may stop by in person, telephone us on 07460 800 229 or email us at

Please note that borrowers may renew loans up to a maximum of three times, after which items must then be returned to the library.  A further request to borrow these same title/s will likely be granted as long as the book has not been placed on hold by another member.

HGCL is not responsible for notifying borrowers that items are overdue, but the library does send out reminders as a matter of courtesy. We will contact you via email/ text for this purpose, so please advice the library of any change in your personal details to avoid not receiving  notifications about your account.

Please be aware that if books are not returned after three reminders your borrowing privileges may be suspended.

As a community run library with no regular income, we will be grateful for a small donation (of which you can afford)  towards any lost or damaged books.
