The renewal is available 7 days before the designated return date and is allowed until the day before the deadline. The first renewal in the library system may last 30 days. Another renewal is allowed according to the information from the library system on the library account, depending on the date of the first renewal. The sum of renewal days cannot exceed 37 days.

A reader applying for a renewal by e-mail should receive a reply to his letter containing the applicable deadlines for returning the books. Sending a request to the Library for an extension of the loan period for books does not constitute a renewal.
