What items can I renew?

You can renew items that other people aren’t waiting for. If an item has holds, you won’t be able to renew it. Find out how many times you can renew an item.

If your account has a balance of more than $75, you won’t be able to renew any items. You will need to pay that balance down to $75 or less before you can check out physical items again.

Auto-renewal only applies to physical items.

Auto-renewal does not apply to digital collections. That’s because digital items are:

  • Returned automatically on their due date.
  • Paid for with different pricing models than physical items.

We pay vendors for each new digital checkout, including renewals. For this reason, it is important to confirm that digital renewals are intentional. Please continue to manually renew digital items you’d like to extend.
