4. Renewing titles

You can renew a title a few days before it's due using these steps:

  • If you've borrowed the book from multiple libraries, select the due date for the copy you'd like to renew.
  • Tap Renew Loan, then Renew.

5. Returning books

Books are automatically returned to the library on their due date. When they're returned, they're also removed from your Loans and deleted from your device (if downloaded).

If you finish a book early, you can return it before its due date using the steps below:

  • Go to Shelf > Loans.
  • Tap Manage Loan.
  • If you've borrowed the book from multiple libraries, select the due date for the copy you'd like to return.
  • Tap Return Early, then Return.
