Ways to Work with a Librarian

The Tredway librarians are here to help you! We have several different ways for you to communicate with us; read below to see which way works best for your needs.


Research Help Desk

During the school year, the research help desk is staffed during the following times:

Monday-Thursday: 10am-4pm, and 6pm-10pm.

Friday: 10am-4pm

Sunday: 6pm-10pm

Librarians will be available to assist you at the Research Help Desk from 1-4pm on weekdays. Research Help Desk student workers are available at the desk in the mornings and evenings; you may also request a librarian's assistance during these times if needed or preferred.
