Research Help Desk
The Research Help Desk, located in the back, right corner from the main entrance of the library, is staffed by a librarian during regular business hours. Please stop by or call (916) 484-8458 for assistance with your library questions. If you need lengthier research help, it is recommended that you make a research appointment. If you need to check out a book or have questions about your account, please speak with the circulation desk at the front of the library.
