The best way to reach a librarian for reference help is through e-mail. The link for sending an e-mail appears below and is also available on the Library home page. The librarians are glad to provide as much reference help as possible and attempt to respond quickly. However, there may be times when they cannot respond right away. For immediate assistance during the week, you might try calling the Library circulation desk (717-691-6006 x3860) and asking for a reference librarian.
