Has anyone ever texted a librarian?

I haven't but I just saw yesterday that you can text a librarian at the NYPL: http://www.nypl.org/text-librarian

We considered this type of service at Bio-Med but didn't pursue funding it (at around ~$1200/year). Here are some additional libraries using the service:

U of Kansas:

NYU:

And here's the article that prompted our discussion:
