Using Answerland

What can I ask about?Answerland lets any Oregonian connect to a librarian by live chat, email or text messaging. Check our availability for hours and holiday closures.

We’ll answer almost anything, but typical topics include homework, using your library, finding a great book to read, and really anything that you are interested in finding out more about.

If you are a K-12 teacher or student, please see our schools page for information on best practices for using Answerland.

Oregon libraries work together to provide the service to everyone who lives, works or goes to school in Oregon. For people outside of Oregon, we are happy to answer questions about Oregon, including local history.

For more information on using our service, see FAQs and Privacy & Terms of Use.
