Renewing Books via Text is Now Available

Renewing Books via Text is Now Available at the Garfield County Libraries

Did you know you can renew library materials and get information about your books on hold via text message? Your Garfield County Libraries are part of the Marmot Library Network, and have had a text messaging service (SMS) since 2014. We recently switched to a new text messaging provider called Shoutbomb.

Shoutbomb is a service that will both save the Library District money and offer even more functionality to users. It has a highly customizable setup where you can receive text message notifications for books available for pickup, and those that are overdue. You will also be able to request information about your current checkouts and fines – and even renew the books and movies you have checked out!

Text SIGNUP to 970-620-9150 to sign up for this text messaging service. It will ask for the library card number from the back of your card- and that’s it! If you wish, you can add additional library cards (for instance, your child’s card) to your account. Once you sign up please let your local library know so they can stop calling when the books and movies you request become available. Everyone who was already signed up for text messages was automatically signed up for Shoutbomb, and no further action is needed.

We hope this new text messaging service adds convenience to your library experience. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask your local Garfield County Library.
