Toms River — The Ocean County Library System has announced it is offering auto-renewals. All eligible items will auto-renew on your account, and there is no need to sign up for this new service.

The new due date will be extended from the original due date, adding another loan period. Eligible items may be renewed up to two times. Patrons will receive notice of item auto-renewal two days prior to the due date. New due dates will be based on the original due date and loan period.

Items cannot be auto-renewed if they are digital materials (Hoopla, Overdrive, eBooks, eAudiobooks, etc.), existing fines are over $24.99, there are holds on the item and no items available to fill the void, and the loan is less than the number of days set for the overdue notice.

Due to varied loan periods, even if the patron does not receive a notice, eligible items will still auto-renew. Patrons may not receive a notice every time an auto-renew occurs because there are nine days between notices.

For any additional information, call the main branch in Toms River at 732-349-6200. —E.E.
