To renew your materials:
- You may check the Renew All icon or select items for renewal by checking the box to the left of the material title, then clicking the Renew Selected icon.
- After clicking the applicable icon, the page will reload, displaying either the new due date(s) or any messages about items that cannot be renewed. Messages can include: TOO MANY RENEWALS, RENEW DENIED, or TOO SOON TO RENEW.

Renewals by Phone
Materials may be renewed by calling the Kent Campus Main Library Circulation Desk at (330) 672-7905 or a Branch or Regional Campus Library
Renewals in Person
Renewals can be made in person with your FLASHcard or another valid form of photo ID (such as a driver's license) at any Kent State University Libraries circulation desk. You do not need to have the materials you wish to renew with you, unless you have reached the renewal limit on the item(s). Items that have reached the renewal limit must be checked in, and may be checked back out to you, provided there are no holds or recalls on the items, and that there are no blocks on your record.
