Ask a Librarian


This service allows you to ask our Reference Staff a question using our handy form. These questions are read and answered by the JCPL Reference Staff. We will make every attempt to respond within 48 hours of your request.

Please think very carefully about your question and keep it as brief, clear and precise as possible. Are there any keywords, phrases or significant terms that will help us? Please include those.

Keep in mind that we cannot do in-depth research via this service. For long, or detailed questions, please call or visit the library, and we will be more than happy to provide more in-depth assistance.

Due to liability issues, library staff cannot give advice on legal or medical issues, taxes, or consumer products. We can provide information on these topics. We cannot provide data or information in violation of copyright laws.
