Books But Does It Support Emoticons?

Just got a press release announcing that the Seattle Public Library’s ask-a-librarian program, which Christopher enthusiastically wrote up almost two years ago on Slog, is now available on IM.
To IM a librarian, you just have to go to SPL’s main page and, as the presser says:
…click the “Find” button without typing any text into the catalog keyword search box. The chat box will be on the right side of the screen. Type in your question or message where it says “Your question/message” and click “Send.” The staff member’s response will appear and the user can respond by writing another message and clicking “Send” again.
I hate using phones. This is good news.
