Recent Additions to Library Catalog Options

Do you rely on your cell phone as a primary form of communication?  If you text or tweet or get your email on your phone, the Ridgefield Library wants to make it easy for you to get the information you want about our collections and programs. Two new text messaging options have recently been added to our online catalog for your convenience.

You can receive hold notifications from the Library as text messages;  you will see this as an additional option in the usual screens for placing holds and managing your account preferences.  No more driving right by the Library only to get home to discover an email or phone message about a book waiting to be picked up.

When you find an item of interest in the online catalog, you can send the call number information to your cell phone as a text message to help you locate the item when you visit. Just look for the “text to phone” link next to the call number. No more searching around for elusive pen and paper.  With the expanded shelving areas coming in the New Ridgefield Library, this will be even more of a help in finding what you seek.
