All Library users should use an address that is checked regularly, that doesn't get full, and that is able to receive messages from the Library. If our messages go into your spam folder then please edit your spam settings and add us to your approved list.
In addition to sending notification of requested items awaiting collection and overdue books, we also send out courtesy reminder messages about two days before books are due back as a prompt to return or renew. We will also email you when an item you have on loan has been requested by another Library user, and will also alert you if you have incurred a fine.
