Library cardholders may renew materials online. Eligible materials must have been checked out for at least two days before they can be renewed. All materials, except Book and DVD Express, and Video Game titles, may be renewed up to five times. Materials that are on hold for another patron cannot be renewed.

How to renew items:
1. Sign in to your account.
2. If you have items checked out, you should see a list of them, or click My Checked Out Items.
3. Select the materials you want to renew by checking the boxes in the RENEW column and then click the Renew Selected button. If you want to renew everything, click the Renew ALL button.
4. If you cannot renew items, a message will appear on the screen. If you are successful, a new due date will appear in the "STATUS" column. Always check the STATUS column for information on the success or failure of your renewal.
