Library Elf

I came across the library elf on our local library’s website.  This is a great service if you are a parent who takes your kids to the library with any regularity.  It is a free service that links to libraries across the country and tracks individuals accounts to help you keep track of all those books, videos,  etc., that the whole family has checked out.  It sends you e-mails or text messages to remind you when items are due.  You can choose how far ahead of the due date you want the reminder.  You can also choose to get one reminder or daily reminders until the items are returned.  What makes this better than tracking accounts on the library’s website is that it lists the entire household’s checked out items.  Just go to your library elf account and it’s all there on one page.  This is going to save us time and money!  Woo-hoo!

Now, if only I could finda free laundry-elf, cooking elf, driving elf, cleaning-elf,  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  1. Preach it, sister! I stopped by to return our books, etc., today, and I was thrilled that our fine is only $4.75. I just started with Library Elf, so I am hoping that we will not be paying any fines after this time.

    I hope you can get the page to work. It is really cool.

  2. Oooh, I will look into this. We have two separate accounts just at our branch of the city library down the street, not to mention two extra towns’ worth of additional library accounts. What a great idea – thanks for sharing!
