Email reminders

In an attempt to reduce paper, postage and time we are introducing email reminders about books which are shortly due back. How will it work? When you borrow a book it is lent to you for 3 weeks* so a few days before the book is due back an email will be generated advising you that it is time to renew/return the book(s). *We do have short loan books which are due back in 7 or 14 days, and we lend back issues of journals for 7 days so the email will alert you about those items as well.
You can renew online at or by contacting the library.
We already use email for letting people know when books arrive so we hope you will agree this is a useful feature.
If you do not have email you will receive a standard overdue letter so do make sure we have your correct details.
Overdues may also go electronic in the near future so watch this space!
If you have any queries or concerns about this please contact Poole or Bournemouth hospital libraries.
