How will I know when my materials are due? Can I renew something?

When you check out at any of the self-checks or with a staff member, you will be given a slip of paper that lists when each item is due. If you lose that slip, you can check your account online and also opt to renew any items as needed. If you have your Library Card # with you, you can call 920-832-6179 (Checkout) or 920-832-6173 (Reference) and be told when an item is due as well as have that item renewed.

Unless there is a waiting list, all materials may be renewed twice. Renewal will extend an item's checkout from the date it is renewed, not from the original due date. Renew online at InfoSoup.org using My Account.

Items borrowed through interlibrary loan from a library outside the OWLSnet system can only be renewed with permission of the owning library. To request a renewal, contact the Appleton Public Library at 832-6173 at least three days before the item is due. It may take a several days to receive an answer from the owning library. Items that are overdue cannot be renewed and must be returned.
