AUTOMATIC RENEWALS INSTATED

Things to know about Auto Renewal:

  1. Auto renewal is NOT an additional renewal, it is one more way for a patron to have items renewed. Currently patrons use Shoutbomb, i-Tiva, My Account and staff to renew items.  Auto renewal is a new additional way for a renewal to happen.
  2. Rules that currently allow two manual renewals will allow 2 auto renewals, rules that allow 1 manual renewal will allow 1 auto renewal, non-renewable items will remain non-renewable.
  3. Auto renewal will NOT renew titles with holds or items that have reached the maximum number of allowed renewals.
  4. Auto renewals will renew items during the courtesy notice process (3 days ahead of the due date), new due date calculated based on the actual due date of the items for 7 or 21 days, depending on the rules associated with that particular item.

RETURN ANYWHERE REINSTATED

Patrons may now return  library material owned by Lakeland Library Cooperative member libraries and Kent District Libraries to any other LLC member library or KDL location regardless of where the materials were originally checked out.

The details…

  • Items may appear on your account for a few days after return. They may need to travel to a central location before they get checked-in fine free.
  • If you check out materials from Grand Rapids Public Library, please return them to a GRPL location only.
  • For more information, talk with a staff member at your home library.

 *GRPL is not participating in the Return Anywhere program at this time, but they will be happy to reexamine it in the future after the completion of their strategic plan.
