Text notices are the fastest way for the SIERRA library system to notify you when your item is in. Sign up to receive your library notices on your cell phone! Most of the time, it’s same-day notification.

Get a text message when a hold is available for you.
Get a text message when an item you have is due soon, and you can renew with a reply.
Find out when an item you have is overdue.

To make the switch from email notices or phone notices to text messaging, contact us at the Alma Public Library with your name and library card number. We’ll get you set for success.
