New! Chat with a Librarian Service Launched at the Library

Need help with your homework or research papers?

As of January 1, 2010, the Worcester Public Library has started a "Chat with a Librarian" service. The new chat service lets you ask questions and get answers online from a professional reference librarian.

The live chat service is available: Monday through Friday 3:00-5:30. During any other time, you may leave your question and email address in the chat box, a librarian will get back to you through your email address.

The chat box can be downloaded to iPhone, Android and Palm. If you would like to learn how, follow instructions here.

You can also use our email us or call us at 508-799-1655 to ask a question of WPL reference staff. For more information, please go to Ask a Librarian page at http://www.worcpublib.org/services/asklibrarian.htm
