Courtesy Renewals

Courtesy Renewals

Beginning May 1, 2017, the Whatcom County Library System and Bellingham Public Library begin Courtesy Renewals, a one-time automatic renewal of any eligible library item at the end of the day it’s due. Patrons who receive email notification will get a notice listing which items were renewed along with new due dates. Our goal is to keep library accounts active and library patrons happy.

Some materials can’t be renewed this way:

  1. Items that have been renewed once already,
  2. Items that have been requested by someone else,
  3. eBooks and eAudiobooks,
  4. Interlibrary Loan items,
  5. Items checked out to a blocked account (owing $10 or more in fines)

The Whatcom County Library System is committed to exploring new ways to improve patron satisfaction. Please contact us  with your questions or feedback via email, phone, online, or in person at your local library.
