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:

We will continue operating the current SMS text alert system until December 27th, 2016.  If you sign up for this new service prior to December 27th, you will receive messages from both systems until we end the current service.  If you would like to opt-out of the old system sooner, please send a text message with the word STOP to 82453 or 35143 from your mobile phone.

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.
