Renewing loans

What is a renewal?

A renewal is an extension of your original loan period. If a loan cannot be renewed for any reason, it must be returned to the Library by the due date to avoid penalties and fees.

Automatic renewals

In general, loans from our general collection are automatically renewed by the system at the end of the borrowing period. However, loans are not renewed by the system if:

  • the item has already been renewed the maximum number of times;
  • another client is waiting for the item;
  • you are blocked from borrowing; and
  • your enrolment has expired.

*This does not apply to books on loan from other libraries. These must be returned by the due date.
