E-mail us through our online Ask a Librarian form. We will reply in 24-48 hours. You can also check a list of subject librarians to email directly.

Text

SMS Text

Text us at (651) 504-1324 during regular chat hours to connect with a librarian.

Or, anytime day or night, for information on the following, text shortcode:

  • HOURS for a link to library hours
  • GROUPSTUDY for a link to reserve a group room online
  • RENEW for a link to renew your checked-out items
  • REPORT for information on reporting an issue in the library (clean up, noise, something is broken, etc)

Any texts submitted after chat hours and requiring a follow-up will be responded to during the next chat session. All shortcode texts (except REPORT) are automated and are not reviewed by a librarian. Texting the library at this number does not sign you up on any list. Your phone number will only be used to provide you with the information you requested.
