Now you can Text a Librarian! This is the newest way the Ridgefield Library invites you to send us your reference questions. Wherever you are, you can use your cell phone to ask all the same questions you might by phone, email or in person. Send your text to 66746. Start the body of your message with ASKRDG, then a space, followed by your question. Press send, and stay tuned for our answer!
During the Library’s open hours, our librarians will be monitoring and responding promptly to incoming text messages. At other times, you can send a message but it will not be answered until our librarians are next on duty.
Teens are known for relying on texting for virtually all communications, and we look forward to hearing from them. But we urge anyone on the go with a cell phone handy to give it a try.
The first time you use the service, you will receive a message with an advertising pitch from Mosio, the company that provides this service to libraries. After that, you should only receive responses from our staff. Please note that Text a Librarian messages will incur whatever charges are customary under your phone plan.
