How do I get research help?

Library staff are available to help you find information in print, online, and with our reference databases. We can help you research a product, find sources for a report or school project, access business, medical, and legal information, or find a good book to read. 

For more in-depth help, arrange a personalized, face-to-face session with a library professional with our Book-a-Librarian service. The Book-a-Librarian sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual. A library staff member will give undivided attention to customers who want help with a research project or to discover new books and authors that match your taste and interests.

Contact us by phone at 509-232-2510, email at, or by visiting us.
