Nevada Library Cooperative launches MessageBee Phone notifications for their patrons

Unique Library is proud to announce a new client to our growing list of libraries served. The Nevada Library Cooperative has added phone notifications for their patrons this month. The 12-branch system has locations across the Silver State, serving patrons in mostly rural communities.

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 phone calls made MessageBee a great choice for the Cooperative. MessageBee also integrated well with KOHA, the library's ILS.

Key features of MessageBee include:

  • Access to the intuitive and easy-to-use online portal for MessageBee.
  • Send phone calls as either a text-to-voice automated recording, or a saved voice recording.
  • Multiple Language ability: Send phone calls in English or Spanish for multilingual patrons.

About MessageBee

MessageBee has three different ways to communicate with your patron base. SMS alerts get in front of more of your patrons with simple and understandable messaging. Email takes boring and confusing ILS-generated email notifications and turns it into a patron engagement tool with a simple drag-and-drop design. Phone notifications cater to your patrons that prefer the personal touch of a recorded or voice-to-text phone messages.
