Library Elf

A big thank you to my friend Alison for reminding me about Library Elf. After paying $6 for two DVDs today I finally broke down and signed myself up.

Basically, Library Elf is a free service that will email you when you have items due or when holds come in. The system tracks multiple accounts (which is great for me since I am a member of two library systems) and you can track everyone in the family's accounts.

I'm sold!

I had completely forgotten about that. I am totally signing up.
Now that both P and F have their own library cards it will be good to know whats out!!

My library has a system that emails you when your due dates come up...and yet I still manage to accrue fines! I think this is a great idea, though.

Anna--that's really interesting. I heard someone here say that the librarian wasn't supposed to give out the libraryelf information. Libraries do rely on overdue fines as a funding source. That's nice that your library will do that for you!

Wouldn't you know it - My library is NOT on the list. I thought it sounded like such a great idea.
