Library Notices

What are library notices?

Library notices alert you when you have an item on hold or an overdue item. There are four different options:


Email notification allows you to receive detailed hold and overdue notices directly to your email account. This is the fastest form of notification, and the library saves on paper and mailing costs.

Please Note:

To ensure delivery, please make sure the library's email address ( is not blocked by your internet service provider.


Phone notification allows you to receive notices by telephone. This is a quick way of receiving notices and it saves paper and mailing costs.

Note: If you have a Tele-Zapper or other similar device on your phone, you will not receive phones calls made by the library's Telephone Notification System. Choose another method of receiving notices.


Mail notifications are sent via U.S. mail. These notices can take 5 to 7 days for arrival.

No Hold Notice

This option is available for customers with full-service cards who prefer not to receive hold notification. Overdue and bill notification will continue to be sent as usual.
