How to Text-A-Librarian

Did you know that you can contact the CW Library through text? The College of Westchester Library participates in a text reference service with libraries throughout the United States.

Texting a librarian is a very simple process; all you have to do is save CW Library (66746) to your contacts and just remember to type CWL before your question. For example, if you want to know if the library has a certain database, such as Lexis Nexis, these are the steps you would take:

1.      Compose a message to CW Library (66746) and save it to your contacts for future use.

2.      Type “CWL Does the library have access to Lexis Nexis?”

The hours of operation for Text a Librarian are:
