Why can I not renew certain library items?

You will not be able to renew library materials if:

  • There are outstanding holds - If an item/s is on a reserve list with outstanding holds, they will not be available for renewal.
  • They are Interlibrary Loan items - These items are not renewable. They must be returned at their original due date so they may be returned to their holding library.
  • They are overdue - Item/s that are currently overdue may not be renewed online; however, you may renew these items by contacting us over the phone or visiting the library during our normal business hours.
