How do automatic renewals work?

Some checked-out items are eligible for automatic renewal, but to qualify:

  • No one else can have the item on hold.
  • The library where the item came from must participate in automatic renewals. (Our library belongs to a group of libraries where items can easily be borrowed from those libraries. If you place a hold on an item, and it comes from another library, you can ask a staff member if it will automatically renew.)
  • Your account must be free of blocks. You can also renew eligible items using your online account, over the phone or with a staff member.
