New Text Alert Service

Ocean State Libraries is in the process of switching vendors for Library Text Alerts and if you would like to continue receiving these alerts, it is necessary to sign up for this new service. Please visit this page for step-by-step instructions:

To get started, text the keyword SIGNUP from your cellphone texting app to 401-298-2013.

We are excited about this new service as it offers so much more! 

  • Messages for Hold Pickups, Reminders and Overdue notices will now list titles. 
  • Get a snapshot of your library account by texting simple keywords.
  • Add family member's library cards and get notified on your phone when there are holds, items due soon and overdue.
