The reference department at the Asheboro Library, and the librarians at the other libraries, provide materials and services which are the heart of the library's public service function. Reference service helps library users find books and materials; find answers to specific questions; select sources to meet general information needs; use the library effectively; and find out about other community agencies, organizations, and services.
Our librarians are happy to help with your research needs. To obtain help, call or stop by one of the libraries, or submit your question to our Ask-a-Librarian Email Reference Service.
Books not owned by this library can be requested from other libraries throughout the state and the southeastern United States. There is a nominal fee to cover return postage. Requests may be made by calling or coming by the library, or by submitting an online Interlibrary Loan Request Form.
In the libraries' reference areas you can also find Internet access and NC LIVE, the state's collection of research databases. Once you have signed the library's Internet Policy, you may access the Internet at any time (children 12 and under must be accompanied by parent or guardian, and young adults ages 13-15 must have permission of a parent or guardian).
