Reference Services

We can help you find materials in our library and others, introduce you to the databases, suggest titles you might like, and assist you with computer or e-reader/tablet use.  Additionally, if you would like one-on-one assistance with research or a particular subject that would take longer than a typical reference transaction, use our "concierge" service and call the adult services department at (630) 231-1552 x4 to schedule a 30-minute appointment with one of our knowledgeable reference librarians
