Renew Library Materials

If you want to extend the due date on your checked-out items, you can usually renew them.

Most materials can be renewed online. The due date will be increased for the same amount of time as the original check-out period. For instance, if an item was due in three weeks when you checked it out, then we will extend the due date by three weeks.
