Q. How do I renew items I have checked out?
If you have checked out an iPad, Hotspot, or other special item, please contact us to see if renewal is possible. For most other items, the system attempts to automatically renew your items three days prior to their due date. This is done as a courtesy service because we know life gets busy and it's easy to lose track of time! This also means that you don't have to manually renew your items.
Items will automatically renew up to three times if there are no active hold requests on the items.
There are three different ways to see whether your items have renewed: by logging in to your account at kdl.org/myaccount, by signing up for email notifications to receive a courtesy notice, or by giving us a call at (616) 784-2007.
If you prefer to opt out of this feature, please let us know the next time you visit, or please give us a call at (616) 784-2007.
Beginning June 1, 2019, late fines are no longer charged for library materials that are returned past their due date. For more information, read our press release.
