Ask A Librarian

Reference Service
The Independence Public Library has Reference Service available to you. We take questions in person, by phone 319-334-2470, or via emailing Ask a Librarian.

You may ask any library staff person and the question may be referred to another staff person, depending on the question and the expertise of various staff members.

We will do our best to find the answers as quickly as possible and get back to you, but the length of time depends on the scope of the question and current library activities, as we do not have a designated reference staff.
