Your library may offer a renew feature, which allows you to place advance holds on titles that you currently have checked out. Renewing a title puts you in line to borrow it again once your first checkout expires.
The option to renew a title becomes available three days before the title is set to expire and appears next to the title on your Bookshelf under your library Account. You can only use the renew feature once for each title you've borrowed.
How to renew
- Log into your library's digital collection website and navigate to your Account.
On your library Bookshelf, select the Renew icon next to the title you'd like to renew.
Note: This option does not appear until three days before the title is supposed to expire.
- If there are no existing holds on a title, the Renew icon will be green, like in the example below. In this case, you can use the renew feature to hold a copy of the title for you, so that you can borrow it again immediately once your first checkout expires.
If there are existing holds on a title, the Renew icon will be grayed out, like in the example below. In this case, you can still use the renew feature to reserve a spot on the title's holds list so that you can borrow it again as soon as it's available.
Enter and confirm your email address in the renewal form, then select the Renew button.
Once you renew a title, its Renew icon on your library Bookshelf will have a checkmark next to it.
You can also track which titles you've renewed from your Holds page.
As soon as your first checkout expires and the title is available for you to borrow again, you will receive an email notification. Click the link in that email or follow these instructions to borrow the title a second time.
