How do I renew eBooks and eAudiobooks?

In the Libby app

If it's within three days of the due date, and there are no holds on the title, you may renew.

  1. Open the app and go to "Shelf."
  2. Find the title to renew and tap "Manage Loan."
  3. Tap "Renew Loan," then "Renew." 

In the OverDrive app or the OverDrive website

If it's within three days of the due date, and there are no holds on the title, you may renew.

  1. In the app, if you're on your bookshelf, select "Add a title." (Skip this step if you're on the website.)
  2. Go to your loans shelf. Loan shelf icon - several books on a shelf
  3. Select the "Renew" button under the title you want to renew.
  4. Pick a renewal period, then select "Renew" again.
  5. If a title has holds already, you'll see a "Request Again" button the last 3 days of the checkout period instead of a "Renew" button. Click to place yourself on the hold list.

Note: The new checkout period begins the moment you renew, so if you had two days left on your original lending period and renew for 21 days, the new due date will be in 21 days, not 23.
