MORE TIME TO ENJOY, LESS LIKELY TO BE OVERDUE
Auglaize County Libraries is unveiling a new feature that makes manually renewing books, CDs, DVDs, Games, Cake Pans, and more, a thing of the past. To make it easier for Library customers to keep track of when their items are due, we’re offering a convenient, new service that automatically renews your checkouts! As of September 1st, 2019, any non-digital items checked out at an Auglaize County Public District Library System location (Wapakoneta, Cridersville, Minster, New Bremen, New Knoxville, and Waynesfield) will be renewed automatically at the end of its lending period. Here’s how it works: Library items may be eligible for a courtesy extension (renewal) near the end of their first loan period. Eligible items will be automatically renewed. It also means you won’t have overdue fines when you forget or don’t have time to renew the items yourself. Please note: items will not be automatically renewed in a number of special circumstances, including the following:
- There are holds on the item (Another customer reserves that item)
- There are over $3.00 in fines on the library account
- The item has reached the maximum number of renewals (usually 1)
- The item is an eBook, eAudiobook, or eVideo, Hot Spot
- The library card/library account has expired
And the best part? You don’t need to sign up for this new service. We’ll take care of it for you! Customers will NOT be notified that their item has been automatically renewed. They WILL be alerted with the standard notice, however, when the item is due back. If you have any questions about our new automatic renewal services, please contact your local library.
