Automatic Renewals

Some physical items checked out from the Library renew automatically. Unless someone else requests an item that you've borrowed, most items may be renewed twice. Items eligible for renewal will automatically renew two days before their due date, extending their loan periods from their original due dates.

Most physical items checked out from the Library (books, audiobooks, music CDs, DVDs) are eligible for automatic renewal. The following items are not eligible:

  • Items that have reached their renewal limit
  • Items someone else has requested to borrow
  • eLibrary materials (eBooks, eMagazines, eMovies, etc.)
  • Bestseller Express items
  • Items checked out by the hour (laptops, game controllers, etc.)
  • Book Club Kits
  • Storytime Kits
