Renewals

Most items can be renewed up to three times for the length of the original lending period.

Renewals can be done in person, by phone, or online. If the item is overdue at the time of the renewal, the overdue charge will be automatically added to the patron’s account. Items are renewed from the date of renewal, not from the original due date.  There is no grace period.

Items that may not be renewed are:

  • Items with holds
  • Items previously renewed three times

Holds

There is a limit of 40 holds at any given time on a patron’s account. No charge is incurred for holds. Items can be placed on hold online, by telephone by calling (262) 532-8900, or in person. When items are available for pickup, patrons will be notified by email, phone, text or postal mail. To set your options, call (262) 532-8901, inquire in person, or choose your option by logging into your account.

Holds may only be checked out on the card on which the hold was placed.

If an item is not claimed on or before the date designated on the notice, it will be offered to the next person on the hold list or returned to the shelf or owning library.
