Most library loans can be renewed. You can do so at the library by asking staff, or online from your catalog account. There are a few things to know about renewals:

  • Most, but not all, items allow 2 renewals. The allowed renewals for specific items is listed in the "Items Checked Out" list. This number decreases as items are renewed.
  • Loans cannot be renewed when there are holds waiting.
  • Loans can be renewed even if your account has fines over $5 or more than 5 overdue items.
  • Renew loans close to the due date. Renewals do not add an extra loan period to the end of the current due date, but start a new loan period at the renewal time.
  • If you have a problem with renewing loans online, please contact your local library for assistance.
