Automatic renewals make it easier to manage your library account

We have enhanced our notification and renewal service to help make it easier for you to manage your library account.

When an item is coming due, we’ll try to renew it for you – automatically. You won’t lose time, as items renew from the previous due date for another full loan period.

If we have your email address, you’ll get a notice that says what renewed, what didn’t, and new due dates. To add or update your email address, log in to your account.

If there are more holds on a title than copies checked in, your copy won’t renew. Downloadable materials and other special formats like book club kits or interlibrary loans do not automatically renew.

As before, you’ll get up to three renewals (automatic or manual) for each item. Items may still be manually renewed in person, online, or by phone at 612-543-8811.
