The Library uses automatic renewals to extend your loans. 

Items are lent for an initial period (7 or 28 days). 

Auto renewal occurs before the due date for a further loan of 7 or 28 days, until the maximum loan period is reached. 

  • 280 days maximum loan for 28 day items
  • 70 days maximum loan for 7 day items 

Automatic renewal may be prevented if there is a pending request or recall for an item. 

  • You will be notified by email if another borrower places a request for an item that you have on loan
  • The item must be returned by the end of the current renewal period 

You will receive a courtesy notice 2 days prior to the actual date items are due for return to the Library.


Readings Collection Items

2 hour loans from the print Readings collection cannot be renewed. To be fair to other borrowers, patrons must wait 30 minutes before borrowing the same item again.
