Unfortunately, there is no way to get a list of books you have on hold when your card expires. To renew your card and be able to access OverDrive again, stop by the circulation desk of any Waren Library location with your ID and your library card.
I am unable to access the “my account” function.
The “My Account” feature of our online catalog has been temporarily turned off as we transition to our new library catalog. It will return when our new catalog goes live on September 22. If you need information about what items you have checked out, your item due dates, holds, etc… please contact any branch of the Warren Public Library and staff will be able to assist you.
