How to Renew

The loan period for some items can be extended.  Renew items on or before the due date to avoid fines and/or charges and fees.  If an item has pending requests or has been recalled, it cannot be renewed.   

To renew items:

    1. Log into My Library Account with your Network Username and password (Same as BlackBoard) your name will be in the upper right hand corner.
    2. Click on Items currently checked out
    3. Click the Renew All items button to renew all eligible items, or select individual items you wish to renew and click on the Renew Marked button

You may also renew items in-person and over the phone.  Visit us at the Circulation Desk or call us at 713-221-8186. 

Recalls

A recall may occur if there are outstanding holds on an item that is checked out.  Most items are subject to recall after 6 weeks.  Items from the Juvenile collection, audiobooks, and music CDs are subject to recall after 3 weeks.  Recalled items cannot be renewed.  These are only guidelines; there may be exceptions.
