"What's the phone number for Disneyland?"

"How much did Microsoft stock sell for ten years ago?"

Got a quick question you need answered? During Central Library's business hours, our Information Services team provides quick answers to questions on a variety of topics over the telephone. The number is 503.988.5234. Information Services is available to users of all ages.

Note: Information Services is limited to supplying readily available information that does not require extensive research. Information Services is our telephone reference service, and provides answers for quick reference questions and referrals for more in-depth questions. Some questions require more research time than staff is able to provide, and you may need to come to the library to do in–depth research.
