If you have been actively using your library card, it should automatically renew on the month immediately following its expiration. You should notice no gap in library services. If your library card has expired due to inactivity (2 years for most memberships), you will need to visit or contact your local library branch to have your membership renewed. At that time, you will be asked to confirm existing address and contact information or supply new information if it has changed.
