Account Alerts

When you sign up for a library card, you have the option to receive library notifications via email, phone or regular mail. These settings can be changed at any time; just contact us. You can also sign up for text messages alerts in addition to your primary notification method.

Email Alerts

Email alerts include (1) "Overdue Notices" (sent after items are due), (2) "Hold Notices" (sent when items you requested are available) and (3) "Pre-Overdue Notices " (sent 2-3 days before your items are due). To sign up for email alerts, complete and submit the form to the right. If you are not receiving these notices as expected, please contact us.

Phone Alerts

Phone alerts are automated phone calls that include (1) "Overdue Notices" (sent after items are due) and (2) "Hold Notices" (sent when items you requested are available). To sign up for phone alerts or if you are not receiving these notices as expected, please contact us.

Text Message Alerts

In addition to your primary notification method (email or phone alerts), you may opt in to text message alerts. Log in to your account via the Library Catalog (V-Cat), click "modify personal information," enter your mobile phone number and click "opt in." Your cell phone company may charge you for incoming texts. Please read the terms of service.

Don't have a library card?

If you never have had a MCPL or V-Cat library card, apply for a card online or at any MCPL location. If you think you may have an account, but your card is lost or deactivated, contact us. Please do not re-apply.

Can't log in?

You may need to renew your card. Library cards automatically expire every three years. Otherwise, your account may be blocked due to excessive fines or other issues. Contact us to renew or check the status of your library account.

Questions?

If you have any questions about the library catalog or our checkout policies, please contact us.
