The county librarian and assistant librarian are prepared to help patrons find material and information in the library and on electronic media. Our part-time staff is not.
The County Librarian is the only person who is authorized to assist patrons on WestLaw and the Internet. Check the librarian's schedule. Schedules
Librarians provide only minimal reference service over the phone. The availability of books and materials, and other simple questions will be answered. Do not expect the librarian to do research for you over the phone.
If a patron knows the exact title and author of a publication he or she requires, an inter-library loan may be available. This means that our library can borrow the publication and allow the patron access to it. If you are an attorney limited check-out is available (1 - 3 days). If you are not an attorney, the publication must be viewed in the library. There is a return postage charge for this service. To request this service, contact Melissa, the assistant librarian. Check her schedule. Schedules
Each branch of the library has a copy machine for public use. These machines cost .10 per copy. Using legal size paper two pages of a book can be copied on a single sheet of paper.
