Items will be automatically renewed up to <strong>five times</strong> unless another library customer has placed a hold on it.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Certain items will not automatically renew. They are <ul> <li>DVDs from East Brunswick Public Library</li> <li>Video Games</li> <li>Museum Passes</li> <li>EB Create Lendable Kits</li> <li>iPads</li> </ul> Items checked out at other LMxAC libraries may renew automatically, according to each library&rsquo;s rules. Items checked out from Old Bridge Public Library will <strong>not </strong>automatically renew; this library is not participating in the automatic-renewal program.<br /> If you are signed up to receive your library notices via email, you will receive an email letting you know when your library items are automatically renewed with the new due date. Otherwise, check your account to manage your renewals or call the Circulation Department at 732-390-6950.
