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, overdues and fines.
  • Send a text to renew a item. (Renewable items only.)

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

What You Need

  • A mobile phone and wireless service that can send text messages.
  • The barcode number from your Plainfield Library card and the PIN for your library account.

Signing Up

To get started, text the message:
