Reference Department

Need help? The Reference Desk staff answer questions on every topic (except Art and Music and Childrens' questions) and often assist with more complex research. We answer questions in person, by phone, and via email using a variety of information sources, including websites, our non-circulating collection of books, business periodicals, and local history resources.
