The Reference Department serves patrons from 6th grade through adult in person, by telephone, email and instant messaging using a wide variety of print and online resources. These resources include a reference book collection and over 70,000 non-fiction titles.
Through Interlibrary Loan, we can also obtain items held by other libraries. Patrons also have access to over 300 magazine and newspaper subscriptions in addition to over 50 databases. Most of the databases are available to Park Ridge Public Library cardholders from home. We also have public computers with access to our databases, the internet, and various software programs including Word 2010, Excel 2010 and PowerPoint 2010.
