Auto Renewal on Select Items

Great news! As a courtesy to our patrons, eligible items will now be automatically renewed three days prior to the due date. MeLCat items (interloan), WiFi hotspots, stem kits, book club books, and YA subscriptions boxes will not renew automatically. The renewal date is based on the previous due date, not the date of renewal. If an item has a hold on it, it will not be renewed. You can check your library account here to view current checkouts and due dates.
