We now have automatic renewal here at the library! This is only for Swampscott items, however, and does not include items for other libraries (unless they participate in automatic renewal).
Please note that the message you receive two days before your items are due will still go out, however, if the items are from Swampscott and there are no holds on them, and they have renewals left, they will be automatically renewed on the day they are due. A message will then be generated that says they have been renewed, but it will also tell you what was not renewed. At that point you can check your account to find out why, or call us to find out.
We hope this clears up any confusion on how automatic renewal works!
