Introducing automatic renewals! As of May 1, 2019, items you have checked out on your account with a standard loan period will automatically renew. Your items will renew two days before their due date, granting you another loan period (3 weeks or 1 week, generally) from your original due date. So, you will not lose any days with your item as a part of this automatic process. Your courtesy notice email will alert you if an item has been automatically renewed, and will include the new due date. Note that if another patron is waiting for an item or if the item has already been renewed four times, it will not be automatically renewed.
