If you provided your email address on your Library Card application, you should automatically receive notifications about available holds and upcoming due dates. 

To confirm we have your email and update it if needed:

  1. Go to My APL: My Settings and log in.
    If you have never logged in, learn how to register with the catalog.
  2. From here you can either click on Email Address from the menu on the left-hand side of the page or click Change next to Update your email address (listed under Account Information).
  3. View and update your email address if needed in both places and click Save Changes.

You can also call Customer Service at 512-974-7475 to confirm or update your email address. 

To ensure our emails go to your inbox rather than a spam or junk folder we recommend you add our notification email address to your Contacts:  

Please note that notification emails are a courtesy only; we are not responsible for misdirected or missing emails. The status of holds and due dates can also be checked anytime in your My APL account.
