Ask Us 24/7
Ask Us 24/7 is a virtual chat service that connects people with reference librarians. Ask Us 24/7 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. You will NOT be chatting with a librarian at the Lansing Community Library and may not even be chatting with a librarian in our community, but you will be chatting with a reference librarian.
The librarian who answers your question will use a range of Internet sources and specialized databases. If you need assistance specifically from your home library, your question will be referred and a librarian from your home library will get back to you via email.
