Welcome to the Laughton Library Page

Get your next library item via text!

Mobile phone text messaging has been launched by Lincolnshire's library service to let borrowers know their items are ready for collection.

The free service means when you reserve a library book, talking book, CD, DVD or video you can now choose to be notified by text message, free of charge.

All you need to do is have your mobile telephone number added to your borrower record.

Any library user wishing to receive text messages should contact their library to have their details added to the borrower records.

To find your nearest library phone 01522 552866 or visit

You can also arrange to get text messages by e-mailing  or through the online catalogue at (you will need your library ticket number and PIN).

However you choose to contact the Library Service you will need to give them your name, library ticket number and mobile telephone number.

Instead of getting texts, you can arrange to be notified by email.  This is also free to library users.

Just follow the guidelines for sending a mobile telephone number to send your e-mail address instead, or send your e-mail address as well as your mobile telephone number. This can then be added to your borrower record.

If you send both your mobile number and your e-mail address, please say which method of contact you prefer.
