Your Account Information

Do you want to get a weekly listing of what you have checked out, put on reserve, owe in overdue fines? If we have your current e-mail address on file here, you just need to pick a day of the week and you will get an automatic status report.

We can set it up for you or you can do it yourself.

  1. Log in to your account on our online system.
  2. Choose the left-most tab, patron menu.
  3. Then my account, followed by a sub-menu also called my account (yes, strange).
  4. Look for a drop-down box labeled Email me on: and pick a day.
  5. Click the submit button in the upper right-hand corner.
Don't forget the submit button and remember, this won't work unless we have a working e-mail address entered in your library card record.
