Sign-up for Email notification

The Pickering Public Library offers an email notification service. Here’s how the service works:

  • You will be sent an email at the address you specify when an item becomes available for you (a hold).
  • You will also be sent an email when items that you have borrowed have been overdue for several days.
  • You will continue to receive printed notices in the regular mail for long overdue items and for notification of outstanding charges.

If your email address changes please inform the Library right away by calling 905-831-6265 ext. 6228, or your local branch, or email at [email protected]. If the Library has trouble sending an email to you, your account will be set back to phone notification so that you are sure to receive information about your holds and overdues.

Children under 14 require the permission of a parent or guardian, in person at the Library, to use the email notification service.

Please be aware that email can be lost or go astray. Library staff will make every effort to ensure that you receive these messages but can’t guarantee this.

If you share an email account with others, you should be aware that the email that you receive will include the titles of items on hold or overdue on your account. Please see the Privacy Policy for details.

Clients may choose to receive an email two days before the due date of your items. To sign up for the “Friendly Reminder” service simply talk to the staff at your local branch or make sure to check "Please sign me up for the 'Friendly Reminder' Service" in the form below.
