Don't panic if you have a book that has passed its original due date. For your convenience, we will automatically renew loans of three days or longer until borrowed items reach their final renewal date. For UMD students, the end date for a regular book loan occurs six months after checkout. Other materials have shorter renewal terms.

You can also manually renew checked out items

  • in person at the Circulation desk
  • by calling 218-726-6120 during hours when the library is open
  • online by using "My Account"

After the final renewal, students and community users will be billed late fees if they return materials after the due date.
