What kinds of library notices can I receive? 

Chatham-Kent Public Library patrons can sign-up for text or email message to receive the following notices:

  • Your hold has arrived!
  • Item coming due in three (3) days
  • Overdue material 
  • Library program reminder 

Is there a charge for this text service?

Standard text messaging rates do apply. Some cell phone providers may charge additional fees for the email-to-text service. Depending on your service provider, email-to-text messages may be sent as MMS messages. To receive MMS messages, cellular data must be turned on.  


What will the text message look like? 

Library notices will be sent as brief text messages, e.g. "Your hold has arrived!" For more information, check your account online by logging in at search.ckpl.ca or Ask CKPL
