  • Choose the Account icon (top right), and then choose the option to Log in.
  • The next screen will allow you to enter your library borrower number and PIN.
  • Your current loans will appear on the tab called My Shelf.
  • Each of your loans shows how many remaining days are left of your loan under the book jacket.
  • You can either renew your loans one at a time by clicking on the book jacket and selecting the Renew button.

If an item cannot be renewed because it has been reserved by another customer or you have reached the renewal limit, you will not see an option to renew on the individual item, and it will appear in a section called Loans Not Available to Renew in the Renew All menu.
