Reference Assistance

The Library offers basic reference service for its patrons. Questions may be submitted via telephone, email, or by coming into the Library for assistance.

The Library regrets it cannot accept genealogy reference questions over the telephone. All genealogy requests must be made in writing, and will be answered as staff time allows.  See our link to the Library's Genealogy and Local History
