You can text us whenever you like, but we will only reply during reference desk hours. When we're not available to answer, you will receive an automated response and we will answer your question the next time we are open.

What Type of Questions Should I Ask When Texting?

Use Text a Librarian to ask simple, quick questions (up to 160 characters) that can be answered in brief responses (up to 320 characters). If our responses exceed 160 characters, they will appear as two messages.

Example: LCCLIB When is the book club
