Library Elf  is a web-based and email tool for library users to keep track of their library borrowings and holds. It makes it easier to keep track of what's due, overdue or ready for pickup from one or more library accounts. This account is checked every day and email notices are sent when items are coming due, overdue or when holds are ready for pickup. As well, users can get up-to-date real-time information through the Library Elf web-site.
