You can get the help of one of our librarians in a variety of ways:

  • Phone | You can reach the Reference Desk at (847) 448-8630 whenever the Main Library is open.
  • E-mail | You can use our E-mail Reference Form to send your questions in at anytime. We will try to get back to you within two days.
  • Instant Messaging | IM us during our regular hours using any of the following four IM clients or simply use the "Ask a question" box at the right or from our Facebook page.

    IM Service Screen Name

  • Text Messaging | You can text us through IM by sending a message to 265010. (This might result in the charge for a standard text from your wireless service provider, depending on your plan.) In the body of the text, first put eplref: then type your question!
