These due date reminders are also called courtesy notices.
The subject line will read:
Each Library Items Waiting notice lists the title of the item to pick up, the location for pick-up, how long the item will be held and the item barcode.
Each Library Due Date Reminder will list the title of the item, the date due and item barcode. Each Library Items Overdue notice will list the title of the item that is overdue, and whether it is a first or second notice. Any fines owed to the library are not listed. (Fines are calculated when the item is returned.)
Notices list library telephone numbers and link to the CCLS catalog.
Library Due Date Reminders are emailed 2 days before an item is due.
Library Items Overdue notices are emailed automatically early each morning, Sunday through Saturday.

Parents or guardians who have co-signed for their child's library card have the right to get information about items checked out on their child's library card. In addition, co-signing parents or guardians are financially responsible for any items checked out by their child.
Because of this, you will probably want to use the email address that is read most frequently by the person who is responsible (often the parents' account).
Or, if your child's reading privacy is important to you, you can have the email notices sent directly to your child's email account.
However, the responsibility for checking email and picking up or returning materials on time is ultimately the parent's responsibility.
You may only use one email address for each library account.
Emails can be returned or 'bounce back' for many reasons:
If you have questions about the email, contact your library directly.
Also, if your account has $25 or more in fines or outstanding materials, you may be referred to a collection agency and be charged a $10 long overdue account fee.

A second notice is sent two weeks after the item is overdue.
A final notice that includes a bill for the item(s) is sent by U.S. mail three weeks after the item is due.
After two months, if you still haven't made payment arrangements, your account may be referred to a collection agency if it has $25 or more in fines, fees or outstanding materials.
A $10 long overdue account fee is also charged to the card holder.
Thus, if you do not receive the library’s notices, you are still responsible for any overdue fines for lost or damaged items.
