How to Customise the email content that is received when a user selects Alert Me option in Share point 2013.

I want the user to see a customised text when the library is updated with new files.

Is this possible?

No you can not customize the OOTB Alert messages.

They are hidden deep down in the bowels of SharePoint,
only blog out there dates from 2007

Alternative is to create a SharePoint Designer Workflow which on every new item sends an email.
You have full control over all formatting then.
