Lincoln Library offers its customers the opportunity to receive material request, pre-overdue and overdue notices via email and material request and pre-overdue notices via text messages (SMS). This means that when an item arrives and is put on the hold shelf, a message is automatically generated the next morning notifying you the item is ready to be picked up. You are also notified at least two (2) days before items are due and when items are overdue. The improved notification process allows you to pick up and return materials more quickly.
