Library Services - Text a Librarian
Americans text message almost twice as much as they talk on mobile phones, according to a recent Nielsen Mobile Survey.
SCPL’s new service makes it easy to reach a librarian and maintains the privacy of our patrons' information. With Text a Librarian, people ask questions by sending text messages with their mobile phones and librarians answer on a web-based interface. The service does not display phone numbers and generates an anonymous ID for each patron in order to reference conversation history.
Using the service is easy. Text SCPL to 66746 for instructions. You can also sign up to receive text message alerts. Just text SCPL to 66746 and then follow the instructions to opt in! Message and data rates may apply. Text STOP to 66746 to opt-out. Text HELP to 66746 for help.
