Renew your books up to 10 times at Mentor Library
We know you meant to read that book awhile ago, but life gets busy. Sometimes, two weeks just isn't long enough.
We at Mentor Public Library understand and want you to share as much time as you need with the books you love.
Until recently, you could renew a MPL book up to four times—as long as no one else had it on hold—for a total of eight weeks.
Anybody with a lawn to mow or dishes to wash or children to care for knows how quickly eight weeks can evaporate.
So we've changed our policy so you can now renew your books up to 10 times. That means you have up to 20 weeks with a book, as long as no one else puts it on hold.
Patrons will still have to renew their books manually—either by calling, via our website or at one of the our branches.
The change in MPL’s renewal policy is specifically for books—movies and CDs can still be renewed four times.
