Save money with automatic renewals

DISCLAIMER: this post is older than one year and may not be up to date.

Has this happened to you? You come to the library and check out as many items as you can fit in your bags. You look at your receipt and make a mental note to bring them back on the due date, but when the time comes, you forget.

In the past you would rack up a pretty penny in fines for your forgetfulness. Not anymore: Your items are now automatically renewed if they aren’t returned by the due date. If we have your email address, you’ll get a message listing the items we’ve renewed and their new due dates.

There are some exceptions. We won’t automatically renew items that can’t normally be renewed, such as

  • items someone else has placed on hold
  • items that have reached their renewal limit
  • items that can never be renewed (like hot copies, hot DVDs, video games, etc.)
