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.
