Availability

Live chat is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in partnership with QuestionPoint. Oregon librarians are online during most daylight hours. When they are not available, questions are answered by librarians from all over the world. While the person you’re chatting with may not be local, she or he will still be able to help you with resources at your library.

You may send an email or text message at any time. We attempt to respond to email questions within two working days, and to text messages within one working day.
