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.
