Hi Shannon, Unfortunately, there's no way to inform the system that you'll be spending time on a book for a while. If you want to make sure you don't lose the book, you'll just have to keep renewing it. Alternatively, if you let Shelley know which book it is, maybe she can get it and rescan the page sooner than you can get it through interlibrary loan.
