Text Alerts – Shoutbomb

shoutbomb_1You can opt in to receive text alert messages regarding your library card account.  The library does not charge a fee for this service.  Your mobile plan’s regular text messaging rates apply and must be able to text an email address.

To get started, text the keyword SIGNUP from your cellphone texting app to 401-298-2013.  Reply to the prompts from Shoutbomb, asking for your library card number, then PIN.  Once your Shoutbomb registration has been completed, you will automatically get text notices about holds to pick up, items that are due soon and overdue items.  A text will be sent only when activity on your account triggers a message, or information is requested.
