My library allows its patrons to renew books 3 times, assuming the item in question isn’t on hold because another patron is waiting for it. I almost always end up renewing my books the allotted 3 times, at three weeks per renewal.
So…what happens is that I check out far more books than I can possibly read in three weeks, then I keep them for nine weeks. I just began yet another renewal period -online, of course- and wondered how many other library users do this too.
Or am I the only one?
