For Your Reference 
Head to your preferred library branch to peruse newspapers, current magazine issues, reference materials, archives and our diverse special collections. These items cannot be checked out of the library, but you’re welcome to enjoy them anytime you visit! 

How Do I Place a Hold? 
Are you looking to reserve a particular title? You can place a hold online, in person or over the phone. Choose your preferred location for pickup and we will let you know as soon as your item is available on the holds shelf.  

To place a hold by phone, call us at (360) 447-5500 or toll-free at (877) 883-9900 and select your preferred pickup location. Have your library card number ready and information about the item you’re looking for, like title, author, etc.   

How Do I Renew Materials? 
We take care of that for you automatically! If no one is waiting for your item and your account is in good standing, we will automatically renew your loan period up to three additional times.  Automatic renewals are not available for Book Club Kits, Interlibrary loan items or items in our digital collection.  

If you wish to renew items manually, several methods are available: 

  • Renew your materials online at catalog.KRL.org

  • Renew by phone. Call us at (360) 447-5500 or toll-free at (877) 883-9900 and ask to renew your materials. Be sure to have your library card handy.  

Fines & Fees 

  • The Library does not issue daily charges for overdue items. If an item is damaged or lost, replacement fees apply. 

  • 21 days after the final due date, an item is considered lost and a replacement fee will be reflected on the account. If the item is returned within one year, the replacement fee will be removed or a refund will be issued.  

  • As a courtesy, email notices are sent before due dates to encourage the prompt return of materials. 

  • Accounts owing over $50 and past due over 60 days will be referred to a library materials recovery firm. 

  • Patrons with outstanding fees may be restricted from borrowing materials.
