Keep your items longer with Automatic Renewals

Date posted: February 15, 2018, 10:29 am

New at your library. Enjoy your checked-out items longer with Automatic Renewals. What does this mean for you? All FCDL materials, except eBooks and downloaded audiobooks, will automatically renew on their due date for up to 5 renewals periods. You don’t need to do anything!

Items cannot be renewed if:

  • The item is on hold for another patron
  • The five renewal limit has been reached
  • The item is currently overdue

You will see automatically renewed items on your “Items Due Soon” notice, which is emailed or texted three days before the due date. The notice will first list items that are due, but are not eligible for renewal followed by those that have been automatically renewed. At the end of the list, you will find the items that you have checked out, but aren’t due yet.

Please make sure to check your notification carefully to see if any of these exceptions apply to your materials. Remember, things will only automatically renew if they aren’t on hold, you have renewals left, and they’re not already overdue!
