Text Message Notices

EVPL offers the capability to send overdue, hold, and courtesy notices to your cell phone via a text message. How do you get started and opt-in?

Login to My Account, and then click on the Edit account button. Set your notification method to “Text”, and enter your 10 digit cell phone number. Then click, “Submit”.

Texts come from 1.844.237.7377. To avoid these texts going to your SPAM/Junk folder, add 1.844.237.7377 to your Contacts. Standard text message rates will be applied by your cell phone carrier, depending on your plan.

*There may be up to a 24 hour delay for processing after opting in.
*Choosing to use the texting service does not change the email or phone notifications you have been receiving from the library. This service is an additional method of receiving notices.
