Patrons with the expiration date between Jan 1, 2021 and Jun 1, 2021 would be as follows. Those surnames starting with A D would have their expiration date extended to July 1. E - H August 1. I - M September 1. N - R October 1. S - V November 1. W - Z December 1st. A survey will be sent to all libraries and they will need to opt-in to provide these extended expiration dates for patrons with their library as their home library.
