you may enter your patron Id number and your password. Your Id

“Activity” link to review the items currently checked
out to your account. A drop down menu allows you to switch between

Out,” a detailed list of titles and their due dates. You
will also notice a toggle for renewing your books. Books cannot
be renewed if they are overdue or if you have other overdue items
on your account. Also, books cannot be renewed more than once
consecutively. If you have books that fall under these criteria,

“Logout” when you leave the computer terminal, or
when you are finished with your account. Although the system will
automatically end a session that has been inactive for a number
of minutes, it is recommended that you logout when you are through
in order to protect your private information and account.
