@Purrna, when I lived in the American South our libraries also printed out the list-very helpful and we used it as a bookmark or hung it on the fridge. Oh that IS the best way, I really miss the print-out!
But I've lived in other states in the US, and here in Scotland, that don't print out the list, so I had to come up with another way to stay on top of those due dates-and the number of books due back.
The library I use here in Scotland permits 12 books out at a time, and I readily admit that between mystery novels and craft books, I check out near or at the full limit every time:) Then I would lose track and on returning the books the librarian would remind me I still had a couple of books out. Luckily I live close to the library and could go home for the ones I'd forgot but marking the number due on the calendar has made it so I do a complete round-up the first time:)
I live near Washington DC. At checkout, a list is printed out. As if that was not helpful enough, I also receive an email 3 days before books are due, then again on due date. All renewals can be done online. And fortunately, the library is only a 1/2 mile away. Many library systems may be able to send email notifications.
