The OverDrive app is easier than ever to set up!
Did you know your library card gives you access to thousands of free ebooks and audiobooks on your devices through an app called OverDrive? OverDrive has recently updated their app to make the set-up process even easier. Users are now prompted to set up an OverDrive account the first time the app is opened. Once this is done your library can be added by doing a zip code search and you are ready to start browsing and downloading books. This update won’t affect patrons who are already using the OverDrive app. The free app can be found in the Apple App store or the Google Play store on your devices.

Teletext/Telemessage Now Available!
Cottonwood Library is now offering a telemessage service as well as text messaging (SMS) notification to patrons. Currently SMS messaging is available to let library users know when an item put on hold is available, when an item is soon to be overdue, and when an item has recently become overdue.
The new service allows library users to be informed of available reserved items sooner than traditional notification methods. Notifications will continue to be available via email, telephone and post as well. This service can be set up at our reference desk.
The telemessage service allows you to call in and renew items over the phone. You can also check the status of your holds, delete holds and check due dates. Just call 928-649-6250 and follow the prompts.
