  • Automatic renewals

    New year, new service! 

    Forgot to drop off or renew your library items? We've got you covered with automatic renewals! Here's how it works:

    • Any physical library item eligible for renewal will now auto-renew one (1) day before its due date. The new due date will be based on the original due date of the item and the loan period for that item (ex. a book due January 10th would be renewed on January 9th and have a new due date of January 24th).
    • Users with email library notices will receive a courtesy notice to let them know the item(s) has successfully renewed. If an item does not auto-renew, users with SMS text or email library notices will receive a courtesy notice that the item did not renew and is due the next day. **NOTE: At this time, there is no phone message system for auto-renewal notifications.**

    All library cardholders are already signed up for automatic renewals. For more information, visit or contact your local public library.

  • New book clubs

    Two New Book Clubs for You!

    Book clubs are a great way to meet other readers and discover new favorites. We’re rolling out two new book clubs in February that we think you’re going to love.

    Literar-e will meet each month at the eLibrary. In a twist on the traditional book club Literar-e invites you to pick a book that matches the monthly theme and bring it for discussion at the meeting. The first meeting is Thursday, February 20th at 6:15 PM. The theme for February is relationships.

    The Reserve book club will feature recent bestsellers and will meet monthly at the Main Library on Lake Morton. The February book is The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead. The Reserve will meet Thursday, February 6th at 6 PM in The Commons.
