How to Renew Library Material

Most materials will automatically renew up to six consecutive times as long as no holds have been placed on that item and the account is not blocked.

 

Placing Holds

You may place up to ten holds at a time.

  • Holds may only be placed on items that are currently checked out.
  • Once a hold becomes available, you have five days to pick up the item.

 

Interlibrary Loans

You can borrow items from libraries around the country using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). More details here.

  • Items are picked up from and returned to the Cedar Park Public Library.
  • There is a $3.50 fee, due at the time of pick-up, to cover the cost of shipping the item back to the lending library.
