I've been waiting 7 days, still no answer! What did they say in the reply?

Thank you for your patronage, here is your library card information. The card is in the mail.
Well. A little more elaborate, but basically that.
Have you checked your spam folder?

That's strange. I thought I would get an e-mail with the login-information not a physical library card? Sounds crazy that they're sending it abroad. The postage most take a huge chunk into the $15 dollars you pay. What would I do with a physical library card from the U.S

I have no idea. I must admit that I was a bit startled, but it might just be a standard phrase.

I looked at the sent date of my application. I sent it on the 9th of August and haven't heard a peep. Perhaps it's time to e-mail them and ask if they have received the application. Perhaps it bounced without me knowing it.

mikaelalind did you get login-information in the reply or was it merely a standard e-mail?

They are sending you a physical card? Strange. Why don't you ask them to send you your membership number via email? That's what they did for me. I don't need a physical card to a library that I am never going to physically visit!

Were you able to find the link to pay the fee?

Oh ok. For me the fine was just placed in My Accounts and was shown as an overdue fee. I was able to pay via credit card once I clicked on the link.

I've sent them a reminder asking if they have received my application and the status of the application process.

Has anyone tried to signup to the Philadelphia library recently? I have sent off an enquiry as I'd love to join. No library in NZ has ebooks yet - and when I queried Auckland library they were very non-committal about it. Very frustrating when the rest of the world seems to have it sorted.

Whoops - these posts are August so people have been trying. These US dates confuse me!

I've just signed up (I asked them on August 16th, they answered me on August 16th, I sent them my fulfilled application form on August 18th and they have answered me today). I've already gone to my account and I've payed the fee. So, I think they work very fast.

I joined a day or so before I started this thread, so that was the beginning of August. And I live in Australia. I think a few people here have had success in joining up after they've read my post.

Hopefully you'll receive a reply from the library soon
