Sign up for text messages

The Dover Public Library can send you notices when your checked out items will be due soon, when an item that you put on hold is ready for you, and when your items are overdue.  These notices can be sent by email or now by text message.

To sign up for text messages:

Log in

1.  Log into our online catalog with your library card number and password (usually the last 4 digits of your phone number).

Choose Your Messaging Tab

2.  Scroll down and click on the "Your messaging" tab on the left.

Check boxes in SMS column

3.  Check the box in the SMS column for any notice that you would like to receive via text message (you can receive notices by both text message and email if you wish)

Enter your text number and provider

4.  Enter your text phone number in the "SMS number" box.  Please enter 10 digits (your area code and the 7 numbers in your phone number) with no spaces, dashes, or other punctuation.  For instance, the library's phone number would be entered as "6035166050".

Choose your text provider from the "SMS Provider" list.  If your provider is not listed, please let us know so that we can add it for you.

Click the "Submit Changes" button.

Or stop by the circulation desk and we will help you.
