Sensitive Areas Alert Feature

New alert feature keeps you in the know

We heard you! In a recent member survey, you asked if there was a way to set an “alert” to notify you if books in your upcoming shipment contain any self-selected sensitive content you’d like on your radar. Your wish is our command! Now, you can set an alert to notify you if any of the following content areas appear in your upcoming selections, giving you time to review, swap or keep the titles before your box is packed. Questions? Contact us at 800.491.0174.
