Library e-mails overdue notices


Alabama Live has a

Story on how one library system now can email overdue notices. An approache that may be used more often in the future.

About 7,000 local patrons receive library notices by e-mail, and Jefferson County library officials say theyhope more people will catch on and use the service in the future. Of the nearly 295,000 library card holders in Jefferson
County, only 2.4 percent have listed an e-mail address
with their local library, said Pat Ryan, director of the
Jefferson County Library Cooperative.

\"If we enroll 10 percent this year, we will be happy,\"
said Mrs. Ryan. \"Over the next two years we would
love to see it jump to 20 percent.\"
