Auto-Renewal: A New Feature for Your Library Account

by Jill Mercurio on 2019-12-30T00:00:00-05:00 | Comments

Beginning on January 1, 2020, items checked out to a Minuteman library patron will be eligible for auto-renewal.

Eligible items will renew automatically 2 days before the due date. The new due date is extended one full loan period from the last due date.

Items will not auto-renew if:

  • The item is on hold for another patron
  • Your library does allows this type of item to renew
  • The item has reached its maximum allowed renewals
  • Your library card account is blocked or expired

Eligibility is based on the status of the item and your account at the time the 2 day reminder notice is generated. 

How will I know if my items auto-renewed?

You will receive an email message with the subject "Library Due Date Reminder". The message will let you know which items are due soon and which items auto-renewed, along with current due dates.

If you do not have an email address on file with your library, you will not receive the message. Check your account with the MLN Mobile App or online to stay up-to-date about your items. Text Message Notices will alert you about which items are still due in 2 days.

If you do not have access to email and our app or the website, you can also call any Minuteman library to confirm due dates, or return items by the original due date.
