How to Sign up

There is no charge to use the text notification system, but your cell phone plan’s regular text messaging rates still apply.

  • Text SIGNUP to 720-893-9151 (or REGISTRESE to receive messages in Spanish)
    • When prompted, enter your Lafayette Library card number (no spaces).
    • You will receive three more messages with introductory information.
  •  If you have already signed up to receive hold notifications by email, you will still receive them. Contact the Library if you wish to discontinue email notification.

What to Expect

  • You will be automatically activated for the following notices:
    • HOLDS: holds ready to be picked up
    • RENEW: items that will soon be due
    • OVERDUE: items that are already overdue
  • Email notifications for holds to pick up are generated throughout the day; text notifications go ahead once a day in the morning
  • Texts will be sent only when activity on your account triggers a message and will be sent between 8 am and 7 pm.

How to Use the System

Select the Tab for Commands & Details to see how to interact with the system. See the Notices section to see how to turn off these notifications, or see which others can be activated.
