Text alerts

You can receive text message notifications from the Library to remind you when books are due for renewal or return, or to advise when books are ready for collection.

This new service provides a quick and convenient way for you to receive notifications straight to your mobile device. 

To opt in to this free service, simply visit MyManchester and select 'Enable text alerts' under the Notifications tab within My Library. You will then automatically start to receive texts.

You can disable text messaging at any time by clicking 'disable text alerts' within MyManchester:

We will use the current mobile number we have stored on file for you, so if this has changed, you will need to update this within the Student System.

If you need more information or help using this service, contact us or ask at the library information desk the next time you visit the Library for more details.
