Instructions For Renewing Online
 
Easton Area Public Library offers library users the ability to renew materials online.  By electing to use the online self-renewal service you are entering into a contract between you and the Easton Area Public Library in which you accept a new level of responsibility for material you have checked out.
Renewals & Holds
Your responsibilities regarding renewals:
If you renew item(s) online, you are confirming that you still have each item.  Therefore, before renewing, you are responsible for:
  • Carefully matching material that you plan to renew against library material in your possession.
  • Immediately reporting any discrepancy to the library.
Instructions for renewing materials online:
  • Click on My Account. 
  • Type in your library barcode number and your four digit PIN.  Click on the Submit button.
  • To display the list of items you have checked out, click on “Items Currently Checked Out” found under your address.
  • You may choose to renew all items by selecting the “Renew All” button. Or you may renew individual items by marking the checkbox next to each title and selecting the “Renew Selected Items” button.
  • After renewing your items you must examine the STATUS column for each item to determine IF it has actually been renewed.  Some types of material will never be renewed, including:
  • Items already reserved by another patron and marked HOLD on the screen.
  • Items which have already been renewed two times.
  • Customer accounts with unpaid fines or overdue bills in excess of $9.99
  • Customer accounts that have expired.
  • If the item was successfully renewed, please note the new due date for your records
  • If the item did not renew, please promptly return the material to the library.  NOTE: Even if you do not notice that an item did not renew, you are responsible for any overdue fines.
Holds:
Library users may place their own holds on materials which are currently checked out.  There is a $.50 charge for this service.
  • To request items, search the library catalog using title, author, subject, etc.
  • After finding the title of the item you want to request, click on the “Request” button at the top of the screen.  Type in your barcode number from your library card, and your four digit PIN.  Choose the pickup location and click on the “Submit” button.  If your request was successful you will see the message, “Your request was successful. You will be able to pick up this material at the Easton Library when it is ready. You may then return to searching the catalog.
  • Some items may never be requested such as reference or Local History materials.
  • You will receive a telephone call or a notice by e-mail that the item is now ready for pickup.  You must bring the $.50 and the library card that the item was requested under to the library, the item cannot be checked out on other library cards.
  • Customer accounts owing unpaid fines or overdue bills in excess of $9.99 will be blocked from requesting items.
  • To cancel holds you have placed. Go to “My Account”; choose to see the items you have on hold.  From your hold list choose which holds to cancel or you may cancel them all, click “Update List” and respond “Yes” to finalize.
If you have trouble with the online renewal or online hold functions, please call the Library at (610) 258-2917
