Ask a Librarian


Ask a Librarian is a service available to patrons via phone or email (online chat coming soon). Not only can librarians provide book recommendations for you and your child, they can help you in so many other ways — they can actually help you find answers to the world’s most fascinating questions. For example, they can …

  • Find answers to questions for research in any area of study from aeronautics to zoology
  • ‎Locate information so you can develop a business plan, find sales leads to grow your business and research your competitors
  • ‎Identify alternative approaches to health care and wellness, focusing on perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated health
  • ‎Research businesses by industry or segment and company size; employment statistics, mapping and traffic modeling
  • ‎And yes, even help with the tough homework assignments students have in elementary, middle, high school or college

So, the real question is … What are you going to Ask a Librarian?
