Ask a Librarian - Chat

We are trying out a new chat service!  To chat with a librarian simply click on the blue link on the lower right of the screen.  If there is a librarian logged on, it will say "Chat Now," otherwise you will be prompted to leave us a message.

Send your question as a text message to 425-780-7830.

  • The librarian texting service is available when the Reference Desk is open.

  • Standard text messaging fees apply.
