Borrowing White Library: Renewals, Holds & Recalls



Library users can extend the due date for items they have borrowed by contacting the library.  Most SAU books, CDs and DVDs can be renewed twice; MeLCat and Interlibrary Loan books can usually be renewed once.  Not all library items are renewable and renewal limits may apply.

A ‘hold’ enables a person to reserve the next use of an item currently in circulation.  Holds can be placed online, by phone, or in person at the Circulation Desk.  To place a hold online, search the library catalog and then select the Request button next to the item you want.  A queue is established if there are multiple holds on the same item.  Library users will be notified by email when the item they have placed on hold becomes available. 


The library reserves the right to recall library material. A recall on an item will send the borrower a notice that the material must be returned sooner than the original due date.
