    Important Notes about Text Message Notifications:

    • Please do not attempt to reply to the text message – we will not be able to receive any texts sent back to us.
    • Standard text messaging rates may apply. This is based on your phone service plan and not the responsibility of the Library.
    • Text messages do not stop other notification methods. Text notice messages are sent in addition to the email or phone notices that you may already be receiving.
