Yes, any library patron can receive notifications by email or text. Patrons who like to place items on hold can be notified by email or text instead of receiving a phone call when their item comes in. Also, an email or text is sent a few days before items are due, giving you a reminder to return or renew before a fine has a chance to accrue. When items become overdue, another email or text is sent out as a reminder to return or renew an item and letting you know that a fine has begun accruing.
