Renewing Items link

Physical materials: When items are renewed, the new due date is calculated from the date of the renewal.

Austin Public Library materials may be renewed two times, except for items that have holds placed on them by other customers and items checked out for 6 weeks on Group Cards. As long as the account is in good standing, eligible items may be renewed online by logging in through My Account. The library card number or username and the associated password are required for this service.

Eligible physical items can also be renewed over the phone by calling the Customer Service Office at 512-974-7475.

The Austin Public Library offers courtesy automatic item renewals. Materials that are “due today” will be automatically renewed if the items are eligible. Items will not be automatically renewed and the due dates of items will not be extended if they have been requested by other users, have already reached the renewal limit, or if your account is not in good standing. If there is an email address on your account and items are eligible for renewal, you will receive a message confirming your new due dates. If items cannot be automatically renewed, you will receive the normal due date reminder email.

eBooks, eAudiobooks & all Digital Resources: Varies by platform, please check the platform's Digital Resource page for renewal information.
