This system is in place in most larger public libraries and it has many advantages to library patrons – especially those in rural areas without broadband access.
If you are already signed up for email, nothing will change for you. However, you are now able to phone in to the library to check your account and to renew items if, for any reason, you can’t access the Internet.
Your PIN number is usually the last four digits of your phone number.
To protect your privacy, TeleCirc does not list the titles of the items that are either overdue or available for pickup. You are offered the opportunity to log in to your account so that you can verify exactly which items it is calling about.
The TeleCirc number is the regular library phone number, 905-875-2665. You access the service by selecting option “6” from the opening message. You’ll be prompted to log in with your 14-digit library card number and your PIN number – so have it ready!
The Milton Public Library relies on two methods to notify patrons of holds and overdue items – phone and email. If you choose to receive notices by phone, you will be receiving those messages from our automated system – TeleCirc. You can now also use your touch-tone telephone to renew items and to check on the status of your account at any time during the day.
