Automatic Renewals

The Library is now offering automatic renewals for Springdale Public Library patrons. Eligible Library materials will now renew automatically two days before items are due. The renewal loan period will extend from the original due date. Most Springdale Public Library items may be renewed up to two times.

The following are not eligible for auto-renewal:

  • Items that have reached their renewal limit
  • Items another customer has requested to borrow (items on hold)
  • Items from other Washington County Library System branches
  • ILL items (special items borrowed from a library out of our system)

You may also renew materials in person, by phone at

479-750-8180, or online.

Auto-renewal notices are sent via email two days before an item is due. If you have chosen to receive notices by email, you will get a notice that items have been renewed. The notice will provide the new due dates for each item renewed as well as any items that weren’t renewed. To ensure you receive these notices, please check that your email address is current.
