For the full range of search options available visit the Library Catalogue. If you can't find what you're looking for contact your local library and staff will be happy to help. Even if we do not have a copy of the item you want, we will try to borrow it from another library, or we will consider buying a copy if it is in print.



You can reserve items online and collect them from any East Renfrewshire Library. Click the Reserve button next to items as you browse the library catalogue. You will need to login to your library account to confirm the reservation. The library will email you when the item is ready for collection.



You can renew items online by logging into your library account and going to the Loans section. You can renew items up to four times but then you must return them to the library. Items cannot be renewed if they have been reserved by another borrower.



Now you can find a title, reserve, borrow or renew it, straight from your mobile. Download the library mobile app now from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
