Automatic Renewal

Items you have checked out will automatically renew before they are overdue

Beginning today, Saint Paul Public Library will offer automatic renewal!

Automatic Renewal means that all eligible, physical items will be renewed three days before they are due back at the library, but if someone has requested a book, DVD, CD, or other item you have checked out, it will not renew, and you should return the item on or before its due date. 

You will continue to receive courtesy notice emails that will tell you if items have been renewed and what the new due date might be.

Items that cannot be automatically renewed include:

  • Wi-Fi hotspots
  • Lucky Day items
  • Book club in a bag 
  • Items borrowed from other library systems (Interlibrary loan or "ILL")
  • Any item someone else has requested
  • Any electronic material, such as e-books and e-audiobooks.
