Renewals are not automatic or guaranteed and should be requested at least 24 hours in advance. The number of renewals allowed for each patron and item type is shown in Loan Periods above. If an item cannot be renewed it must be returned by the due date to prevent lost fees from being incurred. Overdue items cannot be renewed and should be returned to the Libraries immediately. Renewals can be requested in-person at any HPU library branch, by phone, or done online.
