Item number 2 of 23 things…

Today, I took a look at Library Elf.  This is an interesting free service designed for people who are either so busy or so disorganized they need help figuring out when they have materials to either return or pick up from their library.  Library Elf contacts the participant through whichever method they have chosen, then it lets them know not only before something is due back but if something is late.  The program works for an individual or for a family having multiple cards, possibility with large numbers of library-owned items checked out.  I can see that this program might be very useful for a young mother/father who’s child or children take out armloads of books.  As the books are read and spread throughout the house, the odd one or two might pushed under of behind furniture.  With Library Elf, the young parent would have notification of the “lost” item in time to find it and return it, thus avoiding late fees.

My local library participates in this service, and it’s a simple matter of just signing up! Check it out:

    That is really amazing! I could have totally used this as a kid. I was that kid with the boatload of books from the library. It’s unfortunate the libraries in my county do not have this. 😦
