Technology Lending

Renew technology via My Account.

  • Laptops and other 4-hour technology lending items can be renewed once, making them due back 8 hours from the time the item was borrowed.
  • Renewals will add an additional 4 hours to the circulation time, and can be done anytime before the item is overdue.
  • 7-day checkouts, including DSLR cameras, can't be renewed.

Interlibrary Loans

To request a renewal of an interlibrary loan item log in to the Tripsaver request system and choose the "Request a Renewal" option from the main menu. Please note that the renewal is not guaranteed. We will need to contact the lending library to ask for the renewal. We will notify you of their answer.
