What are the changes to item renewal?

Beginning Monday, May 2, Orange County Library System will automatically renew borrowed books, movies, and more! This allows you to keep your checked out materials longer and decreases the likelihood of late fees since any items eligible for renewal will be automatically renewed three days before their due date.

In addition, the total number of possible renewals per item will be increased from three to five. 

Please note, library books and other materials cannot be renewed if:

  • Someone else has requested it
  • The item is a DVD Vault New Release title (these are not renewable)
  • The item has been renewed the maximum of five times
  • Your library card is no longer in good standing (for example: there are exceeding fines or your account has expired)
