Renew Your Books


About Renewals

You can view a list of the items that are checked out to you and renew some or all items.

You will be able to renew any checked out items provided:

  • The item has not reached the maximum number of renewals ("Too Many Renewals"). Most items can be renewed as many as three times before they must be returned to the Library.
  • There are no holds on the item
  • Renewals are allowed on the item
  • The item does not have a status of "lost," "billed," or "claims returned."
  • Your library account is current and in good standing
