  • Some library material is not eligible for renewal. If you attempt to renew such material, "Renewal not allowed" will appear in the status field (near the due date).
  • If you renew an item, you confirm that you still have that item. Therefore, before renewing, you are responsible for:
    • Carefully matching material that you plan to renew against library material in your possession.
    • Immediately reporting any discrepancy to the branch library from which material was checked out or (for Main Library items) Patron Services at 517/355-2333.
    • After clicking "renew," examining the STATUS column for each book to determine if it renewed.
  • If it renewed, please note the new due date for your records.
  • If it did not renew, return the material promptly! NOTE: Even if you don't notice that an item did not renew, you are responsible for any overdue/recall fines.
