Your check-outs are due, let Springfield Public Library help with that! The Springfield Public Library has updated services to begin automatically renewing material for patrons. Eligible items will renew from the original due date.

Patrons will receive an email three days before the items were originally due, letting them know the status of their checkouts. Patrons who do not receive emails can check their account online at or by calling the library during open hours with their card number available.

Items will not renew if they are on hold for anyone, been renewed the maximum number of three times or if the account is blocked.

The Springfield City Council approved the auto-renewal proposal in May for a fall roll out. The proposal came forward after Library staff reviewed the library accounts database from the last 10 years. Of over 16,500 expired accounts in the library database nearly 5,800 have blocked status, which means they have fines of $10 or more. The Library’s goal is to provide better service and access. In a busy world, auto-renewals will allow people more time to return materials without accumulating fines.

What: Automatic renewals started at the Springfield Public Library

When:  started Sunday, September 15

Where:  Springfield Public Library, 225 5th St, Springfield OR 97477
