NEW: AUTOMATIC RENEWAL with your CW MARS Library Account
July 1, 2019 @ 12:00 am - July 1, 2020 @ 12:00 am
NEW with your CW MARS Library Account:
Starting July 1, 2019
Now, not only can Deerfield residents use their local library card to check out materials at any CW MARS public library across the state, but checked out items will be automatically renewed.
HOW IT WORKS:
You will no longer have to remember to log into your account to renew physical items you have checked out. If a checked out item can be renewed it will automatically be renewed on the due date.
An email notification will be sent on the due date alerting you of renewal status for checked out items. It will indicate if your items were successfully renewed or unable to be renewed. You can also log into your account to view the status of all checked out items.
All 147 CW MARS member libraries are participating in auto renewal. This means that no matter where in CW MARS your materials were borrowed from, they will automatically renew on the due date if a renewal is available.
This saves patrons, (and staff), time, energy, and in some cases, stress!
This helps save staff time traditionally used to renew items over the desk and over the phone.
This helps patrons who might not have access to a phone or computer at the time an item is due.
This gives patrons who are traditionally a few days late that extra time they need to return their items.
We hope you enjoy this new feature of your CW MARS library account!
