Sign Up for Account Notices

Your Prince William Public Libraries (PWPL) library record is not linked to your ILLiad record. If you have a PWPL ILLiad account, please submit your email changes to ILLiad as well.



Q. Why is the library offering Internet email notification?

A. PWPL users have requested this service as a convenience for users and to save postage.

Q. How does Internet email notification work?

A. When a hold is ready for you to pick up, the library will send you an email message. The message will list the title(s) being held, the library holding the material and how long the material will be held for you. In addition, if you have library materials more than 21 days overdue, a notice also will be sent via email.

Q. Can all the members of my family receive their notices at the same email address?

A. Yes, but privacy may be a concern. If family members share one email address, then all persons with access to that inbox will be able to view the notices sent to that email address.

Q. What do I do if my email address changes?

A. Notify the library of your new address when you visit or fill out the form available on this page.
