Text a Librarian? At the Fairfield Public Library, sure

The folks at the
Fairfield Public Library have a new service. 
Text a librarian! 
"Given the fast pace of life these days, and work and commuting schedules, it may be more convenient for you to text a librarian than to call or come to the Library," the library staff said in a release.  
"The Library’s new service, Text a Librarian, will allow our patrons to text questions to the Library from their mobile phones.  The service does not display phone numbers and generates an anonymous ID for each patron," the release said.

The first time you the service, text the word “START” to 203-347-2507, the release said.
"You will not have to text “START” to our telephone number again for future requests.  You will receive a text back right away instructing you to text your question.  A librarian will get back to you as soon as possible, during Library hours."

"Of course, we always like seeing you, but when time doesn’t allow, text us!," the state said in the release.

For more information visit, or call 203-256-3160. Follow the Fairfield Public Library on Twitter:  and Facebook..
