If you are in one of the locations below, you may just see some familiar faces pushing a transformed book cart and typing on a netbook. The library is experimenting with a traveling Reference Desk and is available to answer questions and take comments in the places you are at the most. And please let us know where and when would be good for another cart appearance!
