Text Notifications

The library can send you text reminders before your items are due. Hourly items such as laptop/phone chargers and course reserves will receive a text reminder for each item 15 minutes before it is due. Reminders for other items, such as books and DVDs, will be sent at 8:00pm (Eastern) the day before the item is due. If you have multiple items due the next day, the notification will include a count of the total number of items due. Charges from your text messaging provider may apply.

 

To sign up for text notifications, opt out of text notifications, or update your phone number, fill out the Text Notification Form.
