           Update Library Account Contact Details

The Library seeks your cooperation to update your email address and mobile phone number in your library account in the Virtua Library System. For step-by-step instruction on how to update your contact details, please click on the guide.

Why is it important to update your contact details?

To allow you to receive email alerts on the due date of a book you had borrowed. This is to avoid incurring overdue fines.
The Library System will automatically send you an email reminder 3 days before a book is due.

Once the book is overdue, another 5 courtesy overdue emails will be sent to your email account every alternate day.

If your book is overdue, you will not be able to renew the book online. You must come to the Library to pay the overdue fine before you can borrow any books from the Library.

However, you are advised not to rely on email reminders/overdue notices as they are just courtesy reminders. Non-receipt of library reminder notices cannot be used as an excuse to request for waiver/reduction of library charges/fines.

For more information on how to update your contact details, please see our Reference Librarian during library opening hours.
