-You may also renew by going to http://minerva.maine.edu/ and clicking on the Patron Account tab at the lower part of the screen, and then entering your name and card number in the appropriate spaces. From there, you click on the books checked out link, and select the items you want to renew and click update. The new due date will appear once you do this.
