Need more help?

If you’re having trouble getting started or run into a problem you can’t figure out using online help, library staff can assist you.

While the library has altered its services for COVID-19, we are providing Digital Device Call-In Hours instead of our usual in-person Drop-In Hours. Every Wednesday from 6:45 to 7:45 pm, call (607) 386-1465 to get help from our staff with your questions. (Be sure to use a different phone if you’re having trouble getting one of these apps set up on your smart phone!)

We are asking that patrons limit their calls to problems that can be solved in 15 minutes or less. Getting started with our digital collection is a perfect example of what we can help you do via a phone call!

The best time to ask for help is at our Digital Device Drop-In Hours, where staff or volunteers from OHS National Honors Society can help you. Drop-In Hours are every Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. Bring the device you plan to use regularly and your library card. Make sure your device is charged enough to work with and that you know your email password.

Note: Digital Drop-In Hours may be cancelled due to weather, staff illness, or other unforeseen circumstances. Check our calendar or call ahead to be extra safe.

If you are unavailable during Drop-In Hours, we can still help! Library staff at the circulation desk are happy to help with very short (less than 5 minutes) questions. If you have a detailed question or need significant help, call the library or ask at the desk about making an appointment for one-on-one help.
