Notify Me: Email and Text Notification

Help the Library stretch its budget and save a small forest by signing up for electronic notification. We’ll never sell, share or trade your information. We just want to be a faster, leaner Library. You’ll receive lightning fast notices about the items you’ve placed on hold as soon as they become available and we’ll send you helpful reminders about impending due dates, too.

By submitting this form for e-mail notification, you are authorizing Lakewood Public Library to send notices about the availability of holds via e-mail instead of U.S. Postal Service mail. You cannot be notified of available holds by e-mail and U.S. mail. You must choose one method.

If notices cannot be delivered to the e-mail address you have given, e-mail notification information will be removed from your record and the Library will send notices by U.S. mail.

Your e-mail notification will arrive from the address "" with the subject "Library Notice." If you use a spam filter that has an override "whitelist," you may want to add UnicornProd - Sirsi "" to the whitelisted From domains or "Library Notice" to whitelisted Subjects.

The Library will not share your e-mail address with outside parties, except parents/guardians of minors, unless required to do so by a court order.

The U.S. Postal Service offers a reasonable and Federally-enforced guarantee of confidentiality of mail sent to you. There are no Federal or State laws guaranteeing the confidentiality of e-mail communications. Although we consider our e-mail traffic to be reasonably secure, the Library cannot offer a guarantee that information is secure once it travels through the Internet.

You may use the same e-mail address for more than one person if you share e-mail. However, if privacy is a concern, please note that all persons with access to that mailbox will be able to view the notices.

Delivery of notices depends on several vendors: yours and the Library's Internet Service Providers plus intermediate, higher-level providers and links in-between. Delays and delivery difficulties may be beyond the control of the Library.

Standard text messaging rates/other charges may apply as provided in your wireless plan.
