A couple of years ago - before we got our new software - we told our patrons about a free online service called Library Elf. This system would send you emails to let you know ahead of time when something was due and notify you concerning your current overdue fines. Sadly, this system was not compatible with our new software.
We are now offering that same convenient notification system to all our patrons. We will email you a courtesy reminder 3 days before your library items are due, and we will email you overdue notices at 7, 10 and 14 days past the due date. These courtesy reminders will cut down on your overdue fines, and the email overdue notices will save paper and postage. All you need to do is give us your email address.
Wow! Convenient, good for the environment, and economically responsible. You can't do better than that.
Wait a minute....maybe you can. Some of our patrons have expressed a wish for email notification about author visits, slide shows, craft events, family nights and film screenings. If you would like to be included on this separate email list, please let us know.
We do not disclose your email address, or any part of your account information, to other people according to state law (Alaska State Statutes Sec. 40.25.140).
