Sign up for Smart 911 and Boston Library eCard

Looking to stay informed and access more digital library resources?  Here are two services you should sign up for today!


Smart 911 - Upton’s Emergency and Community Notification system to notify our citizens about public safety emergencies, extreme weather warnings and events that could impact your family’s life safety.

Your enrollment can be completely customized with your preferences for which notifications to receive, everything from emergency road closures, to trash pickup information, and format: phone, email or text.

If you've cut the cord on your landline phone, registering your cell phone number with Smart 911 can also save precious seconds if you needed to call 911, by providing automatic information to the dispatcher.

Boston Public Library eCard
The Boston Public Library will give any resident of Massachusetts an e-card, which provides instant access to their digital services.

Highlights include 'Hoopla' - a source of downloadable music, and 'Kanopy' - an archive of streaming video and movies.  Neither of these resources are available locally with just an Upton Library account, but we can all access them through the BPL.

Sign up for the ecard completely online, verify your residency, and you're ready to go!
