Let this Elf help you prevent overdue fines
Managing and organizing your library account just became easier with an online service now offered free to Charleston County Public Library patrons.

Library Elf is an optional, stand-alone service that lets patrons easily keep up with what items they have checked out, receive
e-mail notices, text messages or RSS reminders when items are due or when requested items become available.

It also gives families the ability to check the status of items from multiple library cards in one place, which will help residents avoid overdue fines and better organize library trips by knowing they have a complete list of all items due.

This new service is linked to the CCPL catalog and allows patrons to customize what information they want to receive, how often and even lets them set up reminders seven days before an item becomes due. It also allows them to decide the best format for receiving notices – e-mails, texts, RSS alerts.

To sign up, visit the
Library Elf link on the left of CCPL’s Catalog and use your Library Card number and PIN number to sign up. This service is optional and is in addition to the regular e-mail or postcard reminders sent by CCPL. If you need more information, visit the Library Elf FAQ page or call CCPL at 843-805-6930.
