Remember to keep the patron's email in their record, even if they are switching to getting notified via SMS or VOICE. This way they'll be able to request their PIN, be contacted if holds are about to expire and know when they need to renew their library privileges.

Our Marathon is an online memorial and archive of crowd-sourced stories, photos, video, and social media related to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and its aftermath. They have collected more than 3,500 digital artifacts in the past six months but hope to collect many more. No story is too small for Our Marathon. They are currently working to reach communities across the Boston area to give people the opportunity to share their stories.
