Please ask a librarian for assistance. You may also go to the MAIN Library Catalog. There you can log in with your library card number / PIN and type in the book/movie/game you’re seeking.
You’ll get an overdue notice. An overdue notice is sent when an item is 14 days overdue. If the item is not returned after 6 weeks from the due date, a bill for the replacement cost is sent.
Provided that no one else is waiting for the item, you can go online to the Library Catalog, log in with your PIN / card number, and click on "My Account". You can then pick the items you want to renew there. You can also call (973) 334-2980 to have a librarian renew your items over the phone, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
