I have the button which is the image when the user click on it I want to change the the button to say click here to close.
$(".contact").click(function () {
    contact()
});

//animation for same page links #
$('a[href*=#]').each(function () {
    //alert('Hello');		
    if (location.pathname.replace(/^\//, '') == this.pathname.replace(/^\//, '') && location.hostname == this.hostname && this.hash.replace(/#/, '')) {
        var $targetId = $(this.hash),
            $targetAnchor = $('[name=' + this.hash.slice(1) + ']');
        var $target = $targetId.length ? $targetId : $targetAnchor.length ? $targetAnchor : false;
        if ($(this.hash).length) {
            $(this).click(function (event) {
                var targetOffset = $(this.hash).offset();
                var target = this.hash;
                event.preventDefault();
                $('html, body').animate({
                    scrollTop: targetOffset
                }, 500);
                return false;
            });
