Auto renew


Starting December 2, 2021 all PCIN libraries will be launching their auto-renewal program for physical items. Not this does not include digital items borrowed through download Library (E-books and Audiobooks)  

Patrons who are signed up for email notifications will receive a notice 3 days before their items are due indicating which items have been renewed and which have not. You can also check the status of your items at anytime using the online catalogue.
