- Can I receive library notifications by email or text?
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.
- How do I put an item on hold?
To put an item on hold, search for the item in the card catalog. You can get to the card catalog by clicking the Catalog tab at the top of every page. Once you get to the catalog, search for the item by typing the correct information in the blank box. (For instance, if you want to look for a new Nicholas Sparks book, but aren’t sure of the title, make sure the first box is set to author, then type Sparks, Nicholas in the search box) Once you find an item you want to put on hold, click until it is the only item on the screen. You should see the title at the top and a picture of the item. Scroll down until you see a maroon bar that says Copy/Holding Information. Above this maroon bar, to the right is a button that says Request Any Copy. Click that button and it will take you to a screen asking for you Borrower barcode number and a PIN number. The Borrower barcode number is the number on the back of your library card. Your PIN number is the last four digits of your phone number. After entering these numbers, click the Login button. A Request Confirmation screen will come up next. Click the Request button at the bottom of the screen. On the next screen, click return to searching and continue to look for more items you wish to place on hold. When you are finished placing items on hold, click the Logout button at the top right corner of the screen.
