Answer

Maryland Digital eLibrary / Overdrive:  A "Renew" button will appear next to titles on your Bookshelf 3 days before they are due. 

  • If there is no waiting queue, you'll be placed first in the hold list, and when your audiobook or e-book expires, you'll be able to check it out and download it again. 
  • If there is a waiting list for the title, when you click on Renew, you'll be placed at the end of the hold list.  You'll get an email when your hold becomes available for checkout and download.
  • Read OverDrive's Help article about renewing items.

OneClickDigital Audiobooks:  Audiobooks, except for those with holds, can be renewed one time for up to 21 days.

3M Cloud: No renewals at this time.

    Live Chat

    For more than a decade, Montgomery County Public Libraries has offered a live, digital chat reference service. Developed by MCPL staff in 2002, with just a chat box on the main webpage, we quickly expanded to include chat reference options that could be accessed across the website and even in the catalog. This year the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative, of which MCPL is a member, began providing the same type of chat reference service to all its participating members. We are pleased to announce that, by joining forces with the Maryland AskUsNow! cooperative - a network of librarians worldwide - MCPL will continue to support our community with the same quality chat reference service that we have offered for the last 11 years, but it will now be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We look forward to continuing our reference chats!
