Renewals & Returns

How many times can I renew an item?

If no one else has requested the material, your checked-out materials will renew automatically up to five times. Main Street new fiction and non-fiction titles will have one renewal as of September 8, 2023. This change will allow more readers to enjoy the latest titles.

Digital items may be renewed wthin OverDrive's Libby or the hoopla Digital apps for digital downloads.


On your Library account, check off the items you'd like to renew and then click Renew Selected Items. Or click on the Renew button.

No checkbox?

If there is no checkbox next to the item, this means that someone else has already requested it and therefore it cannot be renewed.

After you've returned the material, place another hold on it so you can check it out when it's available again!


You will receive an email when your item(s) are due to be returned. You may respond to that email or email us to request that your items be renewed.

How to return items?

Items may be returned 24/7 to the outdoor return which is located on the parking lot side of the building by the fountain. The outdoor return may be unavailable if there is a technical issue and we apologize in advance when that happens. 

Items may also be returned inside the building. The two drops are available in the area between the courtyard and the interior of the building once you enter the doors.
