If you are signed up for SMS Alerts, you will receive simple-text messages to your cell phone to remind you that you have items that are due soon, overdue, or on hold. If you reply with the word renew, the system will respond with one of two messages:
- "Your items could not be renewed" (if no items are eligible for renewal), or
- "(x) of (y) items were renewed" (if some or all items are eligible for renewal).
Items that are not eligible for renewal include overdue items, items with holds waiting, or items already renewed. Patrons who owe fines for previously returned materials may not be able to renew materials using this feature. Should you wish to pay fines online by credit card, visit ALISweb.org, log in to your account, and click on "unpaid fines and bills."
To sign up for SMS Alerts, log into your library account, click on “Modify Personal Info,” enter a mobile-phone number, and click on the “opt in” link. Charges from your cell-phone service provider, if any, will apply.
