In Person

Visit the Reference Desk to receive in-person reference and research assistance.
Help with just about anything is available during library hours.

The Reference Desk is straight ahead as you enter the library, next to the windows with the gorgeous view of the Hudson River!

If you need very in-depth research help, you may also consider making an appointment with a librarian.


Call 212.220.8139 for help with research, questions about what the library owns, and more.
Call 212.220.1451 for help with fines, loans, and your library account.


Send us an email for help with reference questions and research (replies within 24 hours).
