New Service: "Almost Overdue" Notices

Due Date ReminderThe Hayner Public Library District is happy to announce that we are now providing “almost overdue” notices to patrons who are signed up to receive text and/or email notifications from the library. The “almost overdue” notice is automatically generated three days before library items are due and is sent via text and/or email (patrons can choose their preferred method of contact).

We are also providing text and/or email notifications 30 days before your library card expires.

Please note: The “almost overdue” notices are generated by the SHARE network, an automated consortia of the Illinois Heartland Library System. “SHARE Notifications” will appear as the sender of the “almost overdue” text and/or email notification.

Patrons who wish to receive notices from the library via text and/or email may ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk of any library location. We currently offer text and email notifications for:

• Almost overdue items
• Overdue notices
• Hold notices (to alert you when items you have ordered are ready for pick-up)
• Library card expiration

Patrons may also choose to opt-out of the “almost overdue” notifications; please ask for assistance at the Circulation Desk if you would like to stop receiving these notifications.

You can manage your library account, including the online renewal of library materials, at

We hope that you find these notifications helpful—and an easy way to help eliminate overdue fines!
