Automatic Renewals

Ocean State Libraries has instituted automatic renewals for its cardholders.   All eligible items will automatically renew two (2) days before their due date.  The new due date will be extended from the original due date, adding another loan period.  There is no need to sign up for this new service.  Checkouts from eZone are excluded and cannot be renewed automatically.

Some items may not renew if:

  •      The item does not allow renewals
  •      The item is on hold for another patron
  •      The item has reached its renewal limit (2 renewals)
  •      The patron’s card has expired or borrowing privileges have been suspended


If the item could not be renewed, patrons can receive courtesy notices with the due date via email or text before it is due.  Courtesy notices are sent to patrons with and email address on their account.
