Text Alerts

With the library’s text alert service, you can use your mobile phone to:

  • Receive text notices about holds that are available, items that are due soon and overdue items.
  • Send a text to renew an item (if item is eligible for renewal)
  • Add family members’ cards to your account with keyword ADDCARD.

The library does not charge a fee for this service.  Your mobile plan’s regular text messaging rates apply.

To get started, text the keyword SIGNUP from your cellphone texting app to 833-403-1353.

Once you are signed up text HELP to 833-403-1353 for a list of commands.
