Libraries system update

We are undergoing a system update that affects how customers use some of our library services. Our online catalogue will be offline between 30 June and 8 July. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Get alerts when items are due or reservations are ready

You can get free email alerts when your loans are due for return or when your reservations are ready to collect using Library ELF. You can register more than one user on each account, so you can get alerts for your family.

You will need:

  • your Buckinghamshire library card number and PIN
  • your email address

If you change your email address, library card number or PIN you will need to update your Library ELF details to continue receiving alerts.
