Signing Up for Text Messages

If you receive email notices, you can also receive library notices as text messages (SMS) on your phone. These brief messages won't include all the details like titles or due dates, but they will give you a link you can use to access your account to check the details, and you can see the full notice in your email.

Please note:

  1. Text message charges from your cell phone carrier may apply.
  2. The text message notices go out 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. seven days a week.
  3. You can't reply to the texts (you can, but your reply will go nowhere).

The text message notices are tied to email notices. You'll need to have your phone number (in a special format) in the email address field of your record. Here are the details:

Email address: We can set this up for you at the checkout desk, or you can do this yourself by editing the email address in your account. Click on "my account" or "login" in the upper right corner of our web site or catalog, or use this link: My Account. Once you're logged in, click the "Modify Personal Info" link on the right.  Just put in your 10-digit cell phone number with no spaces or punctuation, followed by "@sms.oplin.org". Separate this from your email address with a comma but no space. All the following examples will work:

youraddress@nowhere.com,1234567890@sms.oplin.org
1234567890@sms.oplin.org,youraddress@nowhere.com
1234567890@sms.oplin.org
