Automatic Renewals

Starting February 1, 2023, you can cross "renew library books" off your To-Do list. Items checked out on your account will automatically renew up to three times. Renewal periods will be the same length as the original loan period.

Automatic renewals occur unless the item is on hold for another customer or your account is blocked. Most physical items are eligible for automatic renewals. Materials that are not eligible for auto-renewal include Interlibrary Loan, Here & Now Collection, Lucky Day Collection, some Prospector/Mobius items, some Gadgets & Things, and digital content downloaded from Libby, hoopla, and similar services.

To ensure you receive these notices, check that your email address is current in your account or add an email address using the "Edit Account" button. You can review and update your personal information through your online library account (My Account), by calling the Answer Center, or visiting the library for assistance.
