BCCLS text message notifications are now here!


We have good news for BCCLS library cardholders who prefer texting to phone calls and emails: you are now able to receive library notifications (such as when holds are available) via text message.

How do you do this?

  • Sign in to your library account at www.bccls.org. (Once you’re logged in, if you do not see your name and the last four digits of your library card number, hover over the “My Account” button and click on the “My Record” option.)
  • Click on the arrow in the “Contact Information and Preferences” section.
  • Scroll down and enter your mobile phone number in the phone number section.
  • Select your phone carrier in the box to the right.  If your carrier does not appear in the drop-down menu, you are not eligible to receive TXT notifications.
  • Click the circle to the left of “Send TXT to this number.”
  • Click on “Submit Change Request” to save the changes you’ve made to your account.

If you want to receive TXT notifications exclusively (i.e. no email notifications):

  • Select “TXT Messaging” from the drop-down menu below the words “My preference for receiving library notices”. If you want to receive TXT notifications in addition to email notifications, leave this preference set to “Email Address”.
  • Click the “Submit Change Request” button.

Now you’re ready to receive text message notices regarding your BCCLS account.

Note: replies this phone number are not able to be read by library staff. Please respond to the email address in the text message or call the library directly.

Decorate your own cupcake social on Thursday, 8/14


It’s almost that time of year again. Summer Reading is winding down, and it’s time to celebrate the fun we had with this year’s theme of Fizz, Boom, Read!

All are welcome, but please RSVP to info@rplibrary.org or by calling 201-568-7730 ext. 8 so that we have enough cupcakes for you!

Even though summer reading official ends on August 14, we have activities all month long. Be sure to check out our calendar of events (printable version) and join us as we enjoy the last full month of summer.

New database for job seekers


GlassDoor, the world’s most transparent career community, is changing the way that people find jobs, and companies recruit top talent. Its growing database of 6 million company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, office photos and more offers job seekers the type of inside information that is usually impossible to come by without knowing current or former employee. Lucky for job seekers, that’s exactly who provides GlassDoor with all of its information!

Add to that the latest jobs and the ability to see Inside Connections at companies via your Facebook network — no other community allows you to see which employers are hiring, what it’s really like to work there according to employees, and who you may know at a particular company all in one place. Glassdoor is also available via its mobile app on iOS and Android platforms…
