While CUNY Libraries are closed, regular loan books will be renewed automatically. You can check your account by logging into My Account with your CUNY ID (link is under the OneSearch search field) but there is no need to renew books on your own. Contact Us if you see that a loan has not been automatically renewed, or if you have a question about an email you receive regarding your loans. Overdue and recall fines are eliminated for most items.
