No More Paper Notices

Kalamazoo, MI –

October 1, 2011, KPL will discontinue mailing paper overdue and hold notices. After that date, patrons will receive messages from the library by email, phone, or text.

KPL currently mails more than 2,500 notices using ink, paper, and postage every month. Email, phone, and text will save money and reduce KPL’s environmental impact.

Beginning in July, KPL encouraged patrons to help this effort by updating their library account, through the “Verify My Record” contest, now underway at all five KPL locations.

There’s still time to enter! Tell KPL how you want to receive overdue and hold notices from the library—by email, phone, or text—and make sure all your personal information is up-to-date.

Fill out the contest entry form at your neighborhood library by September 3. Don’t delay! You could win an Apple iPad, Kindle 3G, or iTunes gift card.
