Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

It was at our library that I found Nancy Drew and fell in love with the genre.  I’ve been grateful ever since for those tolerant, book-loving librarians who allowed a child like me to read what I wanted to read.

Ask?Away is an online "real-time" chat reference service that opens the vast resources of Illinois's libraries to all residents, no matter where they live or when they need information.  The 24-hour-a-day, 7-days a week, Ask?Away service is staffed by the 24/7 Reference Consortium, a group of hundreds of librarians across the country who work together to provide this service. Local Illinois librarians contribute time to the consortium and local residents benefit from the expanded service.  Ask?Away allows you to ask questions and receive answers in a number of ways.  Don't like live chat?  Email your question to reflsb@lasalle.lib.il.us.  You are always welcome to pick up the telephone and contact us at (815) 223-2341 during our normal business hours.  Choose the option most convenient for you!
