Q. How many times can I renew an item?


San Jose Public Library Patrons: Most books can be renewed 3 times; each renewal will be for 3 weeks. However, if an item has hold requests (others waiting), then you will not be able to renew.  Non-Fiction DVDs can be renewed, again if there are no requests. Please see the full list of renewal limits.

San Jose State Patrons: Loan periods and renewals of SJSU materials are as follows:

  • Undergraduate students: 16 weeks from date of checkout, no renewals
  • Graduate students: 16 weeks from date of checkout, 5 renewals
  • Faculty & Staff: 1 year from date of checkout, 10 renewals
  • San Jose Public Library patrons: 3 weeks from date of checkout, 3 renewals

See Borrow, Renew, Return for more information.
