News from Huntsville-Madison County Public Library Automatic Renewals HMCPL is announcing a new feature available in our catalog that can save you frustration and even money: your checked out items can now renew themselves. With this new feature, your items will automatically renew 3 days before they are due. If others have placed holds and are waiting for that item, or if you have used all your renewals, you will instead receive the usual item due reminder 3 days before the items are due. If you’ve signed up for renewal notices, you will continue to receive those for items that were renewed automatically.
This applies to nearly all the items in our catalog. However, some high-demand items, like hotspots or laptops, are not included.

If you would rather have this turned off for your account, you can do so by logging in and changing the settting — or just call or ask at your local branch.
