Library Text Alerts is a service that allows you to receive text message notifications on your cell phone when:
Terms and Conditions apply.
After submitting the form you will receive a confirmation message on your phone. Reply "YES" to the message.
Note: Each cell phone number can only be used once (sorry, different family members cannot use the same number for different library cards at this time).
Library Text Alerts is a free service offered at no charge for anyone with a Poudre River Public Library card. Text message and data charges may apply depending on your phone plan.
Library Text Alerts can send messages to any device that has a cellular number and is enabled to receive standard text messages (sms).
Please check the Terms and Conditions for a complete list of mobile carriers that support this service.
That depends on your service provider and plan. We encourage you to check with your carrier to determine if there are additional charges.
Shortly after registering for the service you should receive a confirmation text. If you do not receive the confirmation message, return to the form and opt in again. A typo in your phone number will prevent you from receiving messages.
Some cell phone providers provide the ability to filter text messages. You may need to allow incoming messages from 82453 or 35143 short codes.
You will still receive an email message, but we are no longer offering phone calls.
Opt in again with the correct phone number. The incorrect phone number will automatically be deleted from the system.
Opt in again. Double check that you have entered your cell number correctly. The incorrect phone number will automatically be deleted from the system. Be sure that your message filters are set to allow messages from 82453 or 35143 short codes.
Opt in again using your new number and provider. Your old number will be removed from the system.
To opt out from the Library Text Alerts, send a text message with the word STOP, STOP ALL, END, QUIT, CANCEL or UNSUBSCRIBE to 82453 or 35143 from your mobile phone and we will unsubscribe you from our service. You will not receive any additional text messages via your mobile phone.
You may also opt out by logging into your library account and updating your preferences.
You can always email the circulation staff for assistance. Please include your email address and library card barcode number.
