At the Iowa City Public Library we’re always looking for ways to improve services for our patrons. Beginning soon, we will begin eMailing “Enhanced Notices” to help our patrons with their Library Card accounts. The eMails will come from the eMail address “firstname.lastname@example.org”
*It’s Time to Renew your ICPL Library Card: Library Cards routinely expire, if you wonder why please check out this BLOG post. We will send a courtesy reminder to everyone in our service area (Iowa City, rural Johnson County, University Heights, Hills and Lone Tree) when their Library Card is about to expire.
*Don’t Lose That Hold: A reminder a hold will be pulled from the Holds Shelf in two days.
*You are Approaching the Fine Limit: A reminder that fines are approaching $10. Most card privileges are suspended when fines exceed $10.
*The Coolest Card in Town: A reminder for patrons who applied online for a Library Card but didn’t stop by the Library to pick-up their card.
Here’s a sample of what the eMail looks like for Library Accounts that will expire:
