Wait…how does it work?
When an item that is renewable is almost due, our new system will automatically renew it for you. The due date advances the appropriate amount of days based on the renewal schedule for that type of material. Let’s say you have a book due on May 14, the system will send you an email (IF you have selected to receive notices via email) a few days in advance letting you know that your item is now due May 28. You can also check your account via our website or mobile app to see what has been renewed.
