Interlibrary Loans

Determined by lending library

Determined by lending library

 

 

Renewals: Batavia Public Library automatically renews eligible items. Your items will be renewed automatically unless:

 

•   Another patron has the item on hold

•   The item has already been renewed twice

•   Your fines total $5.00 or more

•   The item belongs to a library outside of the SWAN consortium (Interlibrary Loans)

 

How it works: Two days before your items are due, the library’s computer system will try to renew your items. Items that are renewed will be extended for an additional loan period from the due date. Items that are not renewed will still be due on the original due date.

 

If you have a valid email address in your account, you will receive an email telling you which items were not renewed, which items were renewed, and the due dates for the items.

 

Interlibrary loans cannot be automatically renewed; staff must check with the lending library.
