Author Alerts

Want to be the first on the waiting list for a new release by your favorite author?  We now have Author Alerts: a new service that will send you an email or text when a new item by your favorite author is added to our catalog.

How do I access it?

Click here for our Author Alerts page.  In the future, you may find Author Alerts on our Resources for Readers page (found under Books & More on the top navigation menu.)

How does it work?

Just sign up on the Author Alerts website using your email address or cell phone number.  You may choose a screen name to make logging in easier, but this step is optional.

Select the formats you’re interested in.  Only listen to books on CD?  Choose  audiodisc!  Looking for movies with your favorite actor?  Choose DVD!

Enter the name of a favorite author or performer, and click “add.”  That’s it! You’ll now be notified when new material by that author is added.

On the home screen, you’ll see other users’ most recently added alerts, as well as the most popular alerts.  Add as many as you want.  If you would like to delete an alert, just click the “x” next to the author’s name.
