We respond to text messages at least once a day when the library is open (the hours page lists our schedule). Although you can ask any question, the service works best for simple, quick questions. If you have a more in depth question or need a more immediate response, please call us at 413-552-2424 or just stop by. We do not charge for this service, but charges from your cell phone provider do apply.
