Library Email Notifications

Recently, we have had a number of patrons report that they have had issues receiving notifications. We've spoken with the group responsible for maintaining the integrated library system, and they expressed that the issue is limited to gmail users. It appears that gmail's policies and protocols for filtering spam have recently changed and several of our notifications are going directly to spam. Unfortunately, since the issue is with gmail and their system, the library is unable to rectify the problem at this time. The library staff will be working on alternative solutions for notifications until this is resolved. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
