JCPL is excited to introduce automatic renewals!
Effective November 1, your physical items on loan will now be renewed automatically! Items will be renewed for their original loan period and will continue to be auto-renewed until they have met their renewal limit.
DVDs and Blu-ray discs will auto-renew the day they are due and all other items will auto-renew the day before they are due. Please note that if another customer places a hold on an item you have checked out, that item will not be renewed. We will let you know via email if your items were successfully renewed and what the new due dates are.
Please check to make sure you have a valid email address associated with your library account. To do so, please log-in to your JCPL account and update your contact information, or contact the customer service desk.
We hope that this new service is beneficial to you and that it will help make the library even more accessible.
