Mentor Public Library to begin auto-renewals

BooksMentor Public Library will start automatically renewing borrowed books, movies and more, beginning Oct. 1.

This will allow you to enjoy your books, music and videos longer and decrease the likelihood of fines.

There are a few exceptions to this policy. Items will not renew automatically:

  • If another patron puts them on hold.
  • If the cardholder owes more than $10 in fines.
  • The item has reached the maximum number of renewals. (Ten weeks for books, not counting those borrowed from other libraries; four weeks for music CDs, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs and video games.
  • If the item is digital like an eBook, eAudiobook, streaming music or video.
  • If the item is not available for renewal like hotspots, eReaders, ukuleles, traffic cones, and the too-hot-to-hold books and videos in the library’s collection.

All other items will automatically renew

Here’s how it works: If an item isn’t on hold and can be renewed, it will renew two days before its due date, starting from its due date. That means you will get a full additional loan period for that item.
