Renewing your Library Loans

Renewing Loans

The Library's automated system enables borrowers to renew materials online. You are not always required to return materials to the library in order to extend their due date.
But please be aware that under certain circumstances, the system will not allow you to renew.

Materials cannot be renewed online if:

  • Anything you currently have checked out is overdue
  • The titles you want to renew have already been renewed the maximum number of times allowed
  • The materials you are renewing were placed on "Hold" for another patron.

If you have problems, please call the Access Services Department of the Library at: 610-683-4480.
