Tell Me More About These Notifications
If you have activated text and/or email notifications for your library account, you'll receive renewal notifications. If you have not then your items will still be renewed, but you won't be notified.
When an item that is renewable is almost due, our system will automatically renew it for you and send you an email or text letting you know. The due date advances the appropriate amount based on the material. So, if you have a book due on the 16th, the system will send you an email a few days in advance letting you know that your item is now due on the 30th.
How Do I Sign Up?
All LCPL patrons are already signed up for automatic renewals! You may want to give us your email address or phone number to receive notifications, though.
If you do not yet receive email notifications, but would like to, simply send an email containing your library bar code to:
You can also ask to sign up for email or text notifications in person at any of our branches or over the phone.
What Does an Automatic Renewal eMail Look Like?
Why Am I Not Receiving My Notices?
Automatic renewal notices typically go out three days before an item is due. Even if the item can not be renewed, you should still receive a notice stating that the item is almost due.
If you have not received any email notices, give us a call. It could be that there's a typo in the email address we have on record for you, or maybe we have an old address on file.
