Bexley Public Library (OH) launches MessageBee Email and SMS for patrons

The Columbus, Ohio area library adds email and 10-DLC compliant SMS notifications to existing services.

Unique Library is proud to announce the addition of MessageBee email notifications and SMS notifications for Bexley Public Library (OH) this week. Bexley is a current MessageBee user, adding to their existing consortium email subscription. The public library is a member of the Central Library Consortium and has also used Unique’s Gentle Nudge Material Recovery program since 2011.

Bexley Public Library (BPL) is known for its beautiful architecture designed by John R. Van Pelt opening its doors in 1927.  The building features a mix of Classical and Art Deco styles with columns and details that make it a standout destination for the community.  The library is a hub of learning, creativity, and engagement for the residents of Bexley, Ohio in the Columbus area. Bexley joins Columbus Metropolitan Library, Westerville Public Library, and Worthington Public Library as Unique clients in the Columbus area.

MessageBee is a powerful and customizable messaging tool that offers numerous features, making it an essential asset for libraries looking to enhance their communication strategies. Easily understandable emails as well as SMS notifications made MessageBee a great choice for BPL. MessageBee also integrated well with Polaris, the library’s ILS.

Key features of MessageBee include:

  • SaaS Email and SMS service: Our SMS and email notifications require no library-based equipment. We handle the back end, so libraries can focus on their patrons.
  • Superior Deliverability: Unique is on the cutting edge of SMS-based notifications. Our 10-DLC compliant notifications are an upgrade on traditional email-to-SMS in deliverability and clarity.
