We are going green! Beginning Friday, November 22, the library will begin sending electronic notices to patrons for overdue books and holds pickups. The change will eliminate the need for paper mailings sent to customer homes.
“By switching to email notifications, we can make sure that our customers are notified immediately when books they have placed on hold are ready for pickup or when a book is due rather than wait for a notice to come in the mail,” stated John Tuggle, Executive Director of Shreve Memorial Library. “In addition, the library is able to use costs previously associated with mailings on other library programs and services to benefit our patrons.”
Library patrons can update their email addresses by visiting any of the library’s 21 branch locations. Customers can also add or update their email addresses online by clicking on the “My Account” icon and then logging in on the catalog with their library card number and PIN. Once logged into “My Account,” patrons will select “Send a Request” to have their email address updated.
Patrons are not required to submit an email address. However, effective November 22, 2019, paper notices will no longer be mailed to customers regarding overdue books or hold pickups. Those without an email address on file can use their checkout receipt as a reference for due dates, access their library account online to check due dates and holds availability, or call their local branch for assistance.
