Get library notices and renew items on your mobile device!

With the Library’s Shoutbomb text messaging service, you can use your mobile phone to…

Receive text notices about:

  • holds that are available
  • items that are due soon
  • overdue items
  • fines

Send a text to renew a loan.  It the item is eligible for renewal, it will renew.  If the item is not eligible for renewal, it will fail.  Either result will be reported by text message.

The Library does not charge a fee for this service, but you mobile plan’s regular text-messaging rates apply.


  • a mobile phone and wireless service that can send text messages to an email address.
  • the barcode number from your Library card (ten digits, Dxxxxxxxxx), and the PIN for your library account.
    (You can obtain your pin number at any of the service desks)


To get started, text the message:


to:  rsacat@shoutbomb.com

Then reply to the messages from Shoutbomb, asking for your library card number and PIN.

Please let the library know if you have signed up for this service!

Once your Shoutbomb registration has been completed, you will automatically get text notices about holds to pick up, items that are due soon, overdue items, and fines.  A text will be sent only when activity on your account triggers a message and will usually arrive around 9am.
