I was born in the 80s, but I must admit, I hate using my phone as a phone. Why would you call someone when you can send a perfectly good text message instead? There are no awkward pauses or talking over each other, you can take time to compose a response, and if something else (like perhaps any distracting young people in your house) needs your attention, you don’t have to put anyone on hold. When someone texts me, I can multitask to the extreme! Basically: if your phone is ever ringing with a call from me, you know it’s an emergency and something is probably on fire.
If you’re anything like me and can relate to the bliss of easy, fast, brief written communications, the library’s messaging service is for you! You can chat with a librarian anytime we’re open through live chat, text message or email.
From any page on our website you can click on the blue “Ask a librarian” button on the rightmost side of the page and choose whether you’d like to start a live chat or ask a question and receive an answer in text or email.
