Text Message the Libraries

There are two new ways to use the Libraries with your cellphone! (Standard rates apply.)

Text a Call Number to Your Cell Phone

CLIObeta now offers the ability to send a information about an item at the Libraries (author, title, location, call number) via text message to a cell phone.

Here’s how:

  1. Conduct your search in CLIObeta, and select the item you want
  2. Click on "Send to phone" from the item record
  3. Enter your cell-phone number.



  4. A text message will be sent to your cell phone.

Text a Question to Ask a Librarian

Text a Librarian from your cell phone at (215)TEXTCUL or (215)839-8285. Summer hours for the Ask a Librarian service are Monday through Friday from 1pm to 4pm. Look for extended hours this fall! More info.
