Renew Library Materials
If you want to extend the due date on your checked-out items, you can usually renew them.
Most materials can be renewed online. The due date will be increased for the same amount of time as the original check-out period. For instance, if an item was due in four weeks when you checked it out, then we will extend the due date by four weeks.
