Request and Overdue Notices

Request notices are sent by email (if a customer's account has an email address) or by postal mail once requested item(s) have arrived at a library branch and are available for pickup.

Courtesy overdue notices are sent by email (if a customer's account has an email address) or by postal mail once an item has been overdue for more than 14 days. A second courtesy notice will be mailed when the item is 28 days overdue.
