Renew to Keep it Longer

If no one else is waiting for an item that you have checked out, you can renew to keep it longer. Most items can be renewed 10 times, as long as no one else has requested them. Going on vacation? Ask about extending your checkout period.

Each renewal gives you one additional loan period, starting from the date you renew. You can see your new due dates in your online account, or call us at 217/403-2000.

How to renew

  • Use your account online and select the items you wish to renew.
  • Use your account on our mobile app and select the items you wish to renew.
  • Call  217/403-2000, press “2” and please have your library card handy.
  • In person at the Checkout desk, we’re happy to help.
