Is Someone Waiting for My Item?

Most materials will auto-renew, as long as no one else has a hold on the item.

Each automatic renewal grants you another full loan period from your original due date. A Canton Public Library item with no holds will automatically renew four times, unless it is a Lucky Day item. Books borrowed from other libraries will automatically renew one time, and AV items borrowed from other libraries will not auto-renew.

When you look at your account, you can review your checked out items.

In this example, The Waltons is checked out to my account and is still on its initial check out period. If no one places a hold on it, I can expect it to auto-renew.

War & Peace is also on its initial check out period, but 1 person has it on hold. This means that it will not auto-renew, and needs to be returned to the library by its due date of February 28 for the next patron waiting.

Wonder Woman has renewed twice, so it could still auto-renew again. However, someone else has it on hold. The item will not auto-renew and needs to be returned by its due date of March 3.

You do not need to click "Renew" for your items to renew; we will automatically renew them for you.

If you'd like, you can also add the item to your "In Progress," "Completed," or "For Later" shelf in order to keep track of it.
