Frequently Asked Questions

Ask a question when I'm not at the library

Please ask your questions by telephone, at 707-269-1905. 

If it’s not easy to use the phone, use the California Relay Service. Dial 711 to access this service. 

As remains true for many rural libraries, the Humboldt County Library does not provide email reference service.  Please do telephone us with your questions.

If you are out of the area and wish to ask a genealogical or local history question by mail, you may 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 visit the library.)
