Frequently Asked Questions

Ask a question when I'm not in the library

It works best to ask your questions by telephone, at 707-269-1915.  

If it’s not easy to use the phone due to a difficulty in hearing or another disability,  use the California Relay Service. Dial 711 to access this service. 

To ask a question online, use the ’Connect with a Librarian’ button on the Library home page.

If you are out of the area and wish to ask a genealogical or local history question, please use our Obituary Search Service or Local History Search Service. These long distance research services are available for a ten dollar fee.  (Of course, research assistance is free when you are able to visit the library.)
