Renew Online

You are able to renew item(s) online through the catalog. Please follow the steps below:

  • Open the CAFE Catalog from the Hartland Public Library home page.
  • Log into your account using your library card barcode and your password. 
  • Once logged in, go to "Items Out" tab. 
  • Select the item(s) that you want to renew and click the "Renew Selected Items" button or you can click the "Renew All Items" button. 

*Please note that not all items are available to renew. Some titles will have holds.


You may place holds on items at no cost. The number of holds per patron is limited to 50. Holds may be placed by telephone or at our library website, on the CAFÉ Catalog. You will be notified when your items are available, either by phone, email, or text message, and you will have seven days in which to pick them up. If you have not yet signed up for email or text notification and wish for this service please access your account online or check with the circulation desk.

Late Fees

The overdue fine for most items is $0.10 per day. There are a few exceptions to the $0.10 late fine, such as Inter-Library loan items from outside of the Bridges Library System. These fees may range from $1.00 to $10.00 in late fines.

  1. Checkouts
  2. Returns

We ask that you have your library card present when checking items out. However, if you forget your card, you are able to check items out with another form of identification. You may do this up to three times a year. After three times, we will provide you with another library card for $1.
