Are you keeping track of all your family's library cards? 

Would you like email reminders before your library items are due?

Try our new online
Library ELF Alert Service!

Library ELF is a free, web-based service for keeping track of your library items, including what's due, overdue, and ready for pickup.  You can also use this service to track one or more accounts in one place.  Library ELF is great for families or anyone else who would like reminders before an item is due.

With Library ELF you can:

  • receive free due date reminders when you want them; for example, you could get a notice one week before an item is due, then every day until it is due.
  • view due dates in a convenient calendar format
  • get notices as email, cell phone text message or RSS feeds
  • consolidate your accounts from several different libraries
  • consolidate the library accounts of family members

Sign-up for an account today

To sign up, go to the Library ELF signup page for the Wauconda Area Library and follow the instructions.  Enter your name, email address, library card number, and PIN as specified.  If you do not have a PIN, please stop by the Circulation Desk at the library to set one up. 


Library ELF is a private service not affiliated with the Wauconda Area Library.  Cardholders use Library ELF at their own option and risk.  Use of this service does not excuse participants from library fines if materials are returned late.  Users of Library ELF are required to submit personal information, including library barcodes, to an independent company not associated with the Wauconda Area Library.  Please read Library ELF's privacy policy and FAQ before deciding to sign up for the service.


The Library will be closed on Friday, July 4th.

The library will reopen on Saturday, July 5  at 9:00 a.m.

Remember that the library is now open on Sundays year-round from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.
