Notes for the Library Email Notification Service

  1. To use the Email Notification Service, readers are required to register their email addresses through the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPLs) homepage. The service will be activated by entering a valid email address in My Account , selecting  “Email”as the Notification Preference and clicking the Save button.
  2. To ensure that library notices will be correctly delivered, readers are required to login to My Account again for verification of the registered email address after the registration is completed.
  3. By registering for the Email Notification Service, readers agree that the following library notices will be delivered to their registered email addresses:

    1. Due Date Reminder (3 days before the due date)
    2. Overdue Alert (1 day after the due date)
    3. First Overdue Notice (15 days after the due date)
    4. Hold Awaiting Notice (1 day after the hold is filled)
    5. Hold Unavailable Notice (1 day after the hold is cancelled)

    These library notices will not be sent to readers by post except for the situation described in paragraph 6 below.
  4. Readers should regularly check their email accounts to ensure that the accounts are operating normally and have spaces for incoming emails. The HKPLs accept no liability for any problems arising from the failure of the readers to receive library notices via their registered email addresses.
  5. Due Date Reminders and Overdue Notices are issued to remind readers to return the library materials they have borrowed. All loan items must be returned to the library within 14 days after the day of borrowing. Failure to receive the Reminder/Notice or renew the library materials, for whatever reasons, does not discharge the borrower’s liability to pay overdue fines.
  6. When a library notice (except the Due Date Reminder and the Overdue Alert) cannot be delivered through email, a printed copy of the notice will be sent to the reader by post. If the number of undelivered emails exceeds the limit specified by the HKPLs, the Notification Preference set by the reader in My Account will be automatically changed to “Paper Mail”. From then on, library notices will be sent to the reader by post. This reader is required to register again if he/she still wished to receive library notices by email.
  7. The email addresses provided by readers in My Account will only be used for registration of service and the receipt of library notices.
  8. For enquiries, please call 2928 4547 during office hours.
