database about the library kids' page reader advisory reference desk programming & events

The purpose of the Reference Department is to help our patrons find information.  We use a wide array of quality resources to provide the best possible information service.  It is our intention to provide a high level of customer service to both walk-in patrons and telephone patrons. Reference Librarians also understand that not every one is comfortable using a computer.  We will work with our patrons to find the information they need whether it's in a book, on a specialized database, the Internet, or in our on-line card catalog.
