“It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.” 
―  L. M. Montgomery,  Anne of Green Gables

We now have auto-renewal!
Book renewal meme
Some have noticed that we have enhanced our notification and renewal service to help make it easier for you to manage your library account. When an item is coming due, we’ll try to renew it for you – automatically. This will be done up to the renewal limit max on the item. Items will renew from the previous due date for another full loan period. If there are more holds on that item, your copy won’t renew. At this time, only print materials are eligible for automatic renewals.

If we have your email address, you’ll get a notice that says what renewed, and the new due dates. To add or update your email address, speak to the Library staff or log in to your online account at tds-mt.iii.com with your library barcode and password.

Items may still be manually renewed in person or from your online account if you choose.
