Here’s a text message I received:
The gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright
Central (206-386-4636) Level 3
New Book Shelf / Living Room call #:712.6092 S9319F 2009
May I just say that I LOVE this? (Except for the part with “gardens” not being capitalized; otherwise, it’s 100 percent love.)
Here’s how my phone led me to the book: Last Sunday afternoon, when it was 93 degrees, I was sitting on my shady porch with my iBook and frosty ice tea. I began browsing the Library catalog for books about Frank Lloyd Wright to complement Loving Frank by Nancy Horan, a novel I just reread for a book group discussion. I saw that The Gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright by Derek Fell was checked in at the Central Library, but I didn’t want to make the extreme effort of leaving my Adirondack chair to get a piece of paper to write down the call number. Then I noticed the happy little phone icon that says “Text Message.” I clicked on it and sent myself a reminder, complete with the full call number. Monday morning, I opened that text message and went to the shelves to get my book.
Has anyone else been using this text message feature? What do you think?
