Add us on Remind to stay updated on all our programs and events!

What is Remind?

Remind is a helpful “platform that supports communication and learning wherever it happens.” Users can “join” a channel and get updates on events, programs, or important information via text or app notifications. For example, if you have a teen and you’re interested in library programs that promote learning, art, and social connection, you can “join” the BPL Teen class. When we have upcoming opportunities for teens, you’ll get a notification reminder with everything you need to know.

Who is Remind For?

Remind is for anyone who doesn’t want to miss out on all the great programs and events your local library has to offer! You can subscribe to the messages you want to receive, and skip the ones that aren’t relevant to you. That way, you won’t be bombarded with incoming messages that aren’t meaningful to YOU.

 How Do I Sign Up?

It’s easy to get started! And you can choose to interact with Remind in the way that best fits your life. There are three ways to connect:

  1. On the app
  2. On the Remind website
  3. By text

Decide which method is most convenient for you and see below for instructions on each.
