The Reference Department is located on the top floor of the library. In addition to reference items, this is also where you will find computers, scanners, and printers ($.15 per page) available for patron use, as well as a place to plug in your laptop while you work. We now have WiFi Hotspots and Chromebooks available for Lynn residents to borrow. Our reference staff is here to help you obtain information, send faxes ($1 per page within the state, $2 per page for out of state, no international faxing), and assist you in using the online databases and other library services. We can also answer your basic genealogical and local history of Lynn questions. (Please note we do charge a fee for genealogical research, obituary copies $10.00 each).
