Some public libraries allow a library card to be renewed online, while others do not. For example, the Spokane County Library does let people renew the card online by filling out a simple form.
The Los Angeles Public Library is a library that does not do online renewals. To renew a library card, the individual must go to the library and request a new card after filling out a form. At the Spokane County Library, the fees do need to be paid before the library card can be renewed online. The card is usually updated within 24 hours of submitting the online form, with the exceptions of weekends, holidays and special events.
