The Monroe County Library System will soon offer a text message (SMS) alert system for all interested library patrons.

The SMS Alerts service will give patrons the option to receive text messages from the Monroe County Library System on their mobile device. After patrons opt into SMS Alerts, the Monroe County Library System will send text messages to bring an event to their attention, such as an overdue item or a hold ready for pickup.  The service is optional and you can choose to opt out of SMS Alerts at any time.

The new service will begin in early September.  Check back with your local branch or online for further updates.

  • Sprint / Nextel
  • Verizon Wireless
  • Boost
  • Alltel
  • US Cellular
