Mid-columbia libraries going paperless

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—Starting September 1st you won't be getting paper mail from Mid-Columbia Libraries.  They are going green.

Over 2,000 customers will be getting their overdue or ready-to-pick up library notices by phone or e-mail. 

Going paperless will save the libraries more than $5,2000 in annual printing, postage, and staff time costs.  But not only does it save the libraries money, it saves you time.  Communications Manager, Katie Holloway, says you'll get your notices sooner.

If you already get notices by phone or e-mail, the switch won't change anything for you.  But if you et paper notices now, make sure you call your local library and say whether you want e-mail or phone calls.  You can also sign up for a free service call ELF that will send you text messages when your books are overdue or ready-to-pick up.
