Most patrons know that it’s possible to renew materials and extend the loaning period for a variety of items you can check out from your library. But did you know you can renew materials yourself, without having to wait in line? Or, without even stepping foot in the library? It’s true! You can renew your materials at our self-check machines at the Huntington Main library, as well as at home or abroad via our online catalog.
Renewing your items using a self-check machine is easy! Just scan your card and enter your pin as if you were going to check out material normally. Once it’s on the Check-Out screen, simply “check out” your book or item again! This will renew the material for you. That’s it!
Renewing your items online via our online catalog is easy as well. Simply visit the catalog at http://hctp.ent.sirsi.net/ and sign in to your account by clicking Log In at the top of the screen. Enter your library card number and pin, and you will be logged into your account. At the top of the page, click My Account. This will take you to your Checkout Items list. Next to each item, you will see a checkbox. Click each checkbox for the item(s) you want to renew, and then click the Renew button. That’s all it takes! Your materials are now renewed.
Please note: Not all materials can be renewed. Movies, magazines and new books/materials cannot be renewed. Please also note that you can only renew an item one time.
