Hello Circ Workers!
Ever run into an "expired" patron before? If you do, stop, drop, and follow these directions:
If you click on the "Renew" button from the Expired ID pop-up block, it will automatically reactive the account by extending the expiration date to 1 year from today and it will not be alerted. This can lead to a huge problem especially for Friends of the Library borrower accounts as they pay annual memberships to renew their account. If you run into an "expired" patron, it is usually someone who is not currently registered for classes or a Friend of the Library whose subscription has lapsed. Neither of these cases can be allowed to borrow books!
For Friends of the Library, a full time supervisor can renew the subscription for them, otherwise let the patron know that they need to be registered for the current semester to have library privileges. A lot of people will be graduating so this might come up!
