Library Resources – The Reference Room

Located on the second floor of the Library, the Reference Desk is where to go if you have questions.  The Reference Staff will be happy to help you with your quick question, research project, or whatever you may need to find out.

We have books on almost every topic you can imagine. Check the catalog or ask a reference librarian for help finding what you need, including phone books, atlases, and local and national publications.

The Library houses materials for local research, including town reports and old newspapers.

You can reach our Reference Staff at 617-898-4964 or miref@ocln.org.
