請問英文「renewing」與其他字的差別?

「Are you going to the library ?」「Would you mind renewing these books for me?」請問這邊用「renewing」跟用「update、postpone、defer」差別在哪裡?謝謝^^

    To renew is to extend the expiration day or the due day of something.

    To update is to correct wrong or expired information.

    To postpone is to move the start (not the ending) for an event.

    To delay is to put something aside and its time line forward into the future.

    To defer is to move the timeline into the future (without putting it aside).

    But you may consider “delay” and “defer” equivalent.
