Need Info on the Go? Text a Librarian!

Beginning February 1st, you can  ask questions and get information from the Newton Free Library by text message!

Using the service is easy. Text NewLib to 66746 for instructions.  (Message and data rates may apply.)

For patrons who are unable to ask a librarian in person or online, or those who simply prefer texting over talking, the Text a Librarian service provides a convenient option for getting info on their mobile phone from the helpful reference librarians at the Newton Free Library.

With Text a Librarian, patrons 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.

We look forward to your questions!
