Sign Up for Text Message Alerts from CPL

Now you can sign up for text message alerts and get notified on your mobile phone when

  • your hold is ready for pickup
  • items are due
  • you have fines
  • eligible items can be renewed
  • and other notifications

To sign up, text the word SIGNUP to 734-619-6615, then follow the prompts. You'll need to enter your library card number and then you will receive a confirmation text. For more information, or to sign up online, visit our website.

This service is provided through Shoutbomb and your cell phone plan's regular text messaging rates may apply. Text message service doesn't replace your preferred library notifications. You'll still get email, phone or mail notices if that's what you requested, unless you let us know to discontinue them.


We're sorry you are having trouble signing up for text notifications. Try signing up via the webform and see if that resolves the issue. If that doesn't work, please contact us with your phone type and operating system, and your service carrier and we will try and figure out what's happening.
