Librarians are always eager to help people. That’s what we do. But the secret is out. Hundreds of people stop by our busy reference desks every day, and knowing that you’ll get the personal attention you’d like at a time set aside for you sometimes works best with an appointment. We encourage you to try out our special one-on-one offerings. Give us a call. If another time fits better for you, just ask. Perhaps we can accommodate. We’re here for you.
