Renew Materials

The borrower may renew most materials as many as three times, by telephone, in person, or online at My Account. Items can only be renewed online within the time-frame of 4 days before the due date through the due date. Materials which have been put on hold by another customer cannot be renewed. Interlibrary loan materials can be renewed depending on the policy of the lending library. The borrower must notify the interlibrary loan specialist at least 5 days before the due date of his desire to renew this material, and understand that permission for renewal is not guaranteed.

Reserve Materials

Most materials may be placed on hold. Holds are filled in the order received. The requesting customer next in line will be notified by telephone, email or mail when the requested material is available. It will be held for a maximum of 7 days, and then, if not picked up, it will be released to the next customer in line or returned to the shelf. Materials can be held for pick-up at whatever branch the customer prefers.
