Wonder no more. This selection of books is our Ready Reference Collection, and it has been a central part of the reference collection for decades. Editions and titles have changed with time, but the Reference staff has always relied on a core group of books–ranging from dictionaries to phonebooks/city directories, to almanacs and law sources–that are handy and within reach for a variety of questions commonly asked. Our staff knows that not every question can be answered with a click of the mouse and require tried-and-true resources so we can answer your questions accurately and with the best results.
The Ready Reference collection is also available for patrons to use. Just ask any staff member at the Reference Desk, and we will be more than happy to use the resources we consider the best.
