Overdue Notices To Go Online

Beginning in January 2014, patrons of the Sierra Madre Public Library may choose to receive their overdue notices by e-mail instead of mailed print notices. E-mail notices are faster and do not involve a printing charge. Patrons will have a choice to receive overdue notices by email or through the postal carrier. Library staff will ask patrons how they would like to receive any overdue notices and then we will send them as requested.
