We have a few updates to share with you!
We will be receiving library cards to hand out to patrons in the coming weeks. New patrons will each get a card, and existing patrons can request a card and we'll happily print one out for you. Nothing will change if you don't want one- we can still simply check books out with your name as we always have. We think that particularly for our youngest patrons, receiving an actual library card to carry is a momentous experience and we want people to be able to carry around a reminder of the Harbor Springs Library if they so choose.
Secondly, we've begun a new system of automatically renewing books for you as long as:
Each day, our computer will check all accounts for books due and if there are no reasons to prevent a renewal, all items will automatically renew for another two weeks. Apollo will send a notification to each patron using the same method that the patron has chosen for due date warnings. If an item is not eligible for renewal on its due date (if there are reserves placed for the book, or if you have other overdue books), the book will go into overdue status and you will receive a notification as such.
Please make sure we have your correct email address in our files in order to receive due date and renewal notifications! To do this, sign in to your account by clicking here, entering in your library card number, followed by your phone number as the password in the upper right hand corner. If you need your library card number, please give us a call at 526-2531. We can also easily add your email address to our system at that time.
Autorenewal applies to physical HSL books, not to OverDrive digital books or to books checked out through MeL. Also, rental books do not technically ever fall into the "overdue" category, but we will remind you after a month if you still have one checked out.
We're excited to make it easier for our patrons to keep items they enjoy and avoid the worry of having an overdue book.
We also want to remind you to save the dates for the following events at the Harbor Springs Library!
As a reminder, Katie down at Between the Covers offers a generous 20% discount on books intended to be donated to the library. She has a list of books that we'd love to receive, and we're more than happy to inscribe a bookplate honoring you, your child, your grandchild, your dog, or your favorite teacher! You can also donate directly to the library or on our website via Paypal.
As an independently funded library that doesn't receive any tax dollars, we always appreciate your support.
