How to Sign up
There is no charge to use the text notification system. However, individual cell phone text messaging rates still apply.

Text the word “SIGNUP” to 720-893-9151 (or REGISTRESE to receive messages in Spanish). When prompted, enter your Broomfield Public Library card number (no spaces). You will receive three more messages with introductory information and will continue to receive email notifications
