Introducing Automatic Renewal of library materials
Posted July 10, 2019
Starting July 1, you might have noticed a new feature in our catalog and circulation system: physical materials (not downloadables) are being automatically renewed. This should prove to be a time-saver during the busy summer months and after! Patrons with email addresses in their records will be notified by email when an auto-renewal attempt is made. The email will list all items due on that date, whether the item was renewed, and if it wasn't, the reason why.
If you have questions or comments about auto-renewal, let us know!
