The Pikes Peak Library District uses text messaging to send Hold, Reminder and Overdue Notices to you via your cell phone. When you receive a Reminder Notice, you can renew items from your cell phone by replying to the message.

Depending on the number of items, a Notice may span more than one text message. We abbreviate titles to save space, but they should look familiar.

Some examples of Library text messages:

  • (PPLD Pickup Notice):The band wagon, Christmas cheers, All that glitters. Pickup @ PENROSE LIBRARY within 7 days
  • (PPLD Items Due Tomorrow):1:All that glitters, 2:The band wagon, 3: Christmas cheers. To renew, type PPLD RENEW and the number of the item(s). Ex: PPLD RENEW 1,3 or PPLD RENEW ALL
  • (PPLD 4 Week Overdue Notice):All that glitters, The band wagon, Christmas cheers

Renewal information:
You can choose to renew items from the Reminder Notice by replying to the message with the text PPLD RENEW ALL or with the specific numbers next to the titles you wish to renew.

For example:

  • PPLD RENEW 1,2
  • PPLD RENEW 1,3

You will get a follow-up text letting you know whether the renewal attempt was successful.

If you would like to set up text messaging on your account, please contact your library. Our staff will be happy to assist you.
