Reference Services Now On Floor 3 at Central

On Tuesday, December 21, the Central Library will have a new home for Reference Services.

Ever since the new Michael Graves-designed Central Library opened in 1995, the Reference Services department has been located on Floor 1. Today that changed with the grand opening of the new Reference Room on Floor 3.

The new space features more natural light, and a better system of shelving to house the impressive collection of reference materials. A new desk will greet customers as they enter the space, and reference librarians will staff the desk to handle questions and collection inquiries for all of our Reference Services collections.

For more detailed information about the new Reference Room and other Central Library renovations, please visit the Central Library Bond Improvements page.

The new reference room is gorgeous and, despite being on the 3rd floor, more welcoming than the old one.


Thanks for your comment. I'll make sure the Reference staff receives your compliment.
