Renewing Materials

Renewing Books that are Nearly Due


In the green box to the right, there should be an option to allow for the renewal of the books that have been checked out. Click this button to renew the books.

After clicking the "Renew" button, a pop up like the one following should appear. This will offer the opportunity to change your mind. Renewing gives three additional weeks for books and audiobooks or five days for DVDs from the date of renewal, not from the due date.

Finally, clicking "OK", will lead back to the accounts screen--but your due date (in green) will have changed.

To ask a librarian to renew an item, call any of the campuses or visit in person.
