BOOKS and MORE – RENEWING

Pekin owned materials can be renewed 2 times if no other patrons are waiting  (i.e. the item has no “holds” on it.)  An item renews for its borrowing time.  Items borrowed from other libraries may differ; the number of renewals are set by the library owning the materials.

  1. Login by entering your library card number and PIN in the RSA Catalog, then go to  MY ACCOUNT
  2. Choose CHECKOUTS, then LIBRARY CHECKOUTS
  3. Check the boxes next to the item, and select RENEW     Any non-renewable items will be shown in red.
