Virtual Front Desk Service

Video chat with us M-F from 2pm to 4pm using our Virtual Front Desk Service.


We are excited to connect with you virtually in real time and actually see you! Starting Monday, September 14th a reference librarian will be available Monday to Friday from 2pm to 4pm to answer general questions via live video chat.


Please note that depending on the volume of patrons using the service, we may not be able to do in depth reference services. However, we can certainly get you started and help you schedule an appointment for individual attention to your research needs.


As always, you can reach us during normal business hours by calling 619-531-3900 or email us at
