My child's account is tied to mine, so how can I renew his books when I renew mine without having to logout and login his account?
At this point the linking of accounts only works for checking out materials when you are in the library and need to pick up items from linked accounts. This feature is not available at this time for use online...so yes for now you have to check each account's online status separately. It has been suggested to the makers of our online library software that this is a feature that many patrons would like to see. Hopefully we will see the feature in the near future.
