We all know that public libraries have helpful genealogical resources, but perhaps you forget when your loans are due for return and end up paying fines? Do you have children and lots of books borrowed from the library? Do you request lots of holds? If so the new free Library Elf service may be available for your library. This service will send email and/or RSS alerts before items are due, email and/or RSS alerts on overdues and holds, consolidate a list of your or your family's library loans and holds, and even send cellphone text message alerts for holds. Register for and tailor this service to your requirements at < www.libraryelf.com >.
