Renewing your books

Can I renew?

Most items can be renewed twice if they are not required by another borrower. Renewals are for the same period of time as the initial loan e.g, a one week loan will renew for one week whilst a 28 day loan will renew for a further 28 days.

Loans are renewed twice automatically unless:

  • it is an overnight loan, which will only be renewed once and must be returned thereafter
  • the item has been requested by another borrower, in which case it must be returned by the revised due date

How do I renew?

You do not need to do anything to renew your loan, as we will do this automatically for you. If your loan cannot be renewed, or it has already been renewed twice then you will receive an email reminder, at which point the item must be returned.
