Ask us a question ...

In general, online reference is best suited to questions that can be answered concisely from common reference sources. Questions that can be answered with a statistic, name or definition are ideal. We will look up your answer and e-mail a reply. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response.

If your question needs a more extensive answer, you should expect a reply that directs you to specific web resources, an invitation to call or come into the library to explore an answer, or a referral to another agency or library.

As always, we will fax shorter documents when appropriate.

So, if you have a question and are not under time pressure, please click the link below and fill out the form. If you need an answer faster, please come into the library, or call us at 503-682-2744.

You can also contact a librarian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using the Answerland online reference service. Answerland is provided by Oregon's libraries and allows you to chat live with a librarian. For more information, visit the Answerland website at

If you'd like us to place an item on hold for you, please remember to include your library card number.

Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. During open hours, please also feel free to call us at 503-682-2744.
