The email will look something like this:
Patron Name (Patron Library Id)
Depending upon which receipt the clerk chooses, the patron may get a list of all times checked out including the hold that just came in or possibly just the current hold that just came in.

Please let us know if you would rather be called and we can put a note on your account to help us in the future to notify you the way you choose.
You can also be notified via text message by Shoutbomb.
