Renew Materials

You can renew materials from your library account, over the phone, or in person at a library service desk.

You cannot renew items if you have past-due fines, overdue items, or lost or damaged books.

Items Ineligible for Renewal

You cannot renew the following items

  • Equipment
  • Recalled items
  • Course reserve items
  • Browsing collection books
  • Overdue items (Call or visit the service desk to renew)

We limit the number of consecutive renewals you may place on an item

  • Books — Up to 2 renewals
  • Videos (DVD and VHS) — 1 renewal

If you want to renew an item past its renewal limit, you must return it to the user service desk to check it in. If no one has recalled it, you may check it out again.
