Bug Description

Evergreen 3.4.2

If a patron renews an item that is not yet due, the item renews for the regular length of time, even if that date falls within an emergency closure.

Not sure why a patron would choose to renew their items online when their due date has already been pushed far into the future, but if they do, they get the regular renewal period/loan duration.

If that duration happens to be less than the remainder of the closure, they now have a due date sooner than what was set by the emergency closure. The item is now due while the library is still closed.

Would this same thing happen if an extended due date was set at checkout time?

Is this mainly about the renewal code not looking to see if the new due date is after the current due date?
