GET TEXTS TO MANAGE YOUR ACCOUNT 

Shoutbomb allows ImagineIF customers to receive text notices about holds, items due soon and overdue items.  You can even manage your whole family’s library cards from one phone.   

How to sign up: 

If you already have an ImagineIF library card, send a text message with the word “signup” to (406)215-4240.  You will receive replies asking for your library card number and PIN.  If you don’t know your PIN, please contact us and have your library card number ready. 

Instructions on how to manage the types of messages you can receive from Shoutbomb can be found here. 

You will continue to receive email or telephone notifications from the library.  Text message alerts are a separate service. 

Shoutbomb is required by contract to keep this information and the information in your text messages private.  Shoutbomb cannot use your information for any purpose other than to send you text messages.  Standard text messaging rates apply.
