Each page of your Patron Account shows the total number of items you have currently checked out from the library. In addition, you can view a list of the materials you currently have checked out, and renew items if your library provides this option. Occasionally, you may not be able to renew items because there is a problem with your account. For example, your account may be blocked to verify information, you may owe the library money, you may have too many overdue items checked out, or you may have too many disputed or lost items. Sometimes renewals are blocked for certain items even when there is no problem with your account. For example, an item may satisfy another patron’s hold request, or it has already been renewed the maximum number of times allowed. Library policy determines if an item can be renewed.
