You can extend the loan period of your borrowed media in your library account in OPAC. Under "Borrowing" you will find all media that you can renew.

Renewal is possible at the earliest 5 days before the end of the lending period, provided the lending period has not been exceeded or the item has not been reserved by other users.

If, for once, it is not possible to extend your account, please contact us.
