Reference/Help Desk 

We're here to help! By phone or in-person, the Watauga Public Library's Reference Librarians provide assistance during all hours the Library is open. We can provide the answers to questions on a wide range of topics, and if we can't find the answer, we'll refer you to other possible sources of information or assistance.

Your Reference Librarian is ready to help you:

  • Locate books, movies, music, and magazines here or at another library.
  • Locate information online, in books, periodicals, or databases.
  • Sign up or RSVP for Library programs and classes
  • Utilize the catalog to search for materials.
  • Acquire information about local organizations and community resources.
  • Take advantage of all the great resources at your disposal, such as our online language-learning database and online tutoring.
  • Sign-in to use the computers and help you search the Internet or use other computer applications.
  • Suggest good books.
  • And much more!

What we can't do:

  • Conduct extensive research for patrons.
  • Conduct extensive family research.
  • Provide advice on medical, tax, or legal matters.
  • Write resumes or cover letters (although we will gladly assist in helping you get started).
