I don't know if this is a new service or not, but I love it!
Imagine this scenario . . .
It's Friday night and you're having $5 martinis at Francesca's with the girls when someone wants to know the release date of the Sex & The City movie. You say May 30th and your girlfriend insists it's April 30th. A round of Cosmopolitans is hanging on the answer.
What do you do?
Text message the Arlington Heights Memorial Library (during normal business hours, except 9-10pm weeknights)!
Send a message to 265010.
Start your message with ahmlq:[your message]
After that, just send and receive messages as you would normally (no need for the "ahmlq" again).
Tip: Due to message length restrictions, short queries with short answers work best.
Let's get back to the Sex and the City question.
ahmlq: Sex and the City movie release date
And the answer would be . . . May 30th.
Of course, standard text messaging rates apply.
