What is e-mail notification?

E-mail notification means that we'll send you notices about your library account via
e-mail instead of U.S. mail.

  • Due Dates: courtesy reminders sent three days before an item becomes overdue
  • Overdue Notices: sent when a current item becomes overdue
  • Holds/Reserve Notices: sent when a requested item is available for pickup
Why should I sign up for e-mail notification?
Because notices are sent via e-mail instead of U.S. mail, you'll receive them faster and save money on any accumulated overdue fines. Also, e-mail notification is better use of your tax dollars! Help us be "green" and reduce the number of postcards printed and save on postage costs so that we can use your tax dollars more efficiently.
How do I sign up?

Sign up for e-mail notification at the Circulation Desk of any CCPL branch, the bookmobile or online.


General Information:

  • E-mail addresses are not shared or disclosed to any person or business outside the Charleston County Public Library.
  • Please notify the library of any e-mail address changes.
  • You may have an e-mail address added to each family members' accounts in order to receive notification of all your family's library materials.
  • You may renew materials online after obtaining a PIN (personal identification number). You may receive your PIN at the Circulation desk or by calling your branch library. One renewal per item is possible if there are no reserves on the item.
  • We ask our patrons to help us by being responsible. Please remember that failure to receive an e-mail notice does not waive a patron’s responsibility for the timely return of materials or fines incurred.
