You could
- not allow renewals for this item type
- allow holds

That way a book that is requested by others would only remain at
person A for one loan period. Before they could renew it, somebody
else (person B) could reserve it. When A has to return it, B will
get it and only then it is possible for A to put a hold request to
get it again after B returns it (if no person C has reserved it
before). If there is no person B waiting, person A can renew the
book at the library. Does that make sense?
