Email Reminder Service
Register with Library Elf to track your library account. Using Library Elf, an Internet-based tool from an independently run company, you can receive email and/or RSS feeds when your items are due for return and requested titles that are ready for pick-up. You can even track all family library cards by email on the one account!
How do I get reminders from Library Elf?
and Frequently Asked Questions
You will need to provide your Cairns Libraries card number (the number under the barcode on the back of your card) along with your account PIN. Once you are signed up for an account, you can choose to receive email reminders and/or RSS feeds for all of the cards you attach to your account. Email reminders are sent in HTML format only.
What about fines on overdues?
Library Elf reminders do not include any information regarding overdue fines. You will need to check with Cairns Libraries directly for details on fines. Contact us by phoning or visiting any branch
or logging on to our online catalogue
Please note that you are still responsible for any overdue fines even if you do not receive a reminder via Library Elf.
Can I renew my items using Library Elf?
No. While Library Elf will tell you when your items are due, you can only renew items by visiting or phoning Cairns Libraries or by renewing online in Member Services.
