Reference Services

Need help finding the answer to a puzzling question?  That's why we're here.  Any time the library is open, feel free to ask for help from any of our staff.  We'll be glad to help you find the information you need.  You may also call in your reference questions. 


Borrow from another library

Our library is connected with other libraries throughout the state.  If you can't find an item in this library, ask library staff to help you get it from another library.  
We buy the books and materials that we think are most wanted by our community.  We can't buy everything that is published, but we can get most items we don't have from another library through inter-library loan.  Our library is part of a vast network of participating libraries that are willing to loan out materials to other libraries.  There is no charge for this service.
Most of the items are delivered to our library in 4 - 7 days.  The loan periods vary, but you are able to keep most items at least two weeks.  The staff will inform you of the loan period when you pick up the item.
