Email Alerts

      Email Alerts      

Dear Patrons:

We are pleased to make you aware that we have activated the Email Alert feature of our new computer system, Koha. This means you will now receive email notifications regarding a variety of services you use at the library. We hope you find this feature convenient and useful.

Email alerts will be sent to you for the following*:

  1. Checkouts: Each time you check out items from the library, an email will be sent to you listing the title, barcode, and due date for each item in your possession.
  2. Holds: When an item you have placed on hold becomes available for pick-up, you will receive an email letting you know. This includes items that become available through Interlibrary Loan.
  3. Advance Notice: One day before an item is due, an email will be sent to you as a friendly reminder either to renew the item, if renewable, or to return it.
  4. Overdue Materials: Emails will be sent to you whenever you have items that are 5, 30, or 60 days overdue.
  5. New Patron Accounts: New patrons will receive an email listing their new account information.
  6. Acquisition Suggestions:  If you place a purchase suggestion through the online catalog, you will receive an email letting you know if we intend to purchase the item or if we will attempt to obtain it through Interlibrary Loan. In either case, you will be notified when the item is available for pick-up or if we cannot obtain the item.

*Please note when more than one item meets the criteria for any of the emails listed above, you will receive one email listing all items, and not separate emails for each. For example, if you have three items that are due tomorrow, you will receive one Advance Notice email listing all three, and not three separate emails.

Remember, in order to receive these email alerts, you must have a valid and active email address listed with the library. To update your email address information, please request a Patron Information Update Form at the front desk.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask at the front desk.

Thank you,

The Free Public Library of Audubon
