Reference Questions?

The Payson Public library has reference professionals who are happy to help you with your research needs. Please be advised that while we can provide you with informational sources, we cannot offer legal, medical, or financial advice. All phone reference questions will be addressed as time allows. Staff is limited in the amount of time devoted to reference questions. Lengthy reference questions over the phone or in person are not always feasible at the time of query. If your request will take some time to research, your contact information will be taken and you will be contacted by a reference professional within one business day. Thank you.
