Appointments are not available for evening hours between 5-9PM but a librarian will be available at the Reference / Information desk to meet with you. Just come in.
If you cannot come to the library during the scheduled In-person Reference hours, you can Live Chat with a librarian throughout most of the day, Monday through Friday. If we are not available on chat, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you with an answer or to set up a time to chat or meet.
