NOTICE: Charges may be incurred from your cellular provider. Check the terms of your contract for details on charges related to receiving text messages. Complete notices are sent via text messaging and are truncated to fit character limits.  Your provider may send multiple text messages for each notice. 

  • Please be aware that all library notices include more information than will fit in a standard text message. We encourage you to also check My Library Account, ILLiad and your emailed notices for additional information.
  • We strongly encourage you to continue to receive emailed notices in addition to text messaged notices, and to monitor My Library Account and ILLiad.  Failure to receive any notice does not relieve you of your borrower responsibilities.
  • TO UNSUBSCRIBE from text service, remove your phone number and extension from the Email Address field. Do not remove your email address.
