Drake Memorial Library at the College at Brockport is now using Google Voice to expand its reference desk services. Our new phone number allows for you to call or text the reference desk. Text messages will be responded to by a librarian at Drake during open library hours. Voice calls to the number will ring the reference desk (x2760 on campus). Responses may be delayed up to three hours depending on human availability.
