This service is intended for questions with brief, factual answers. For answers to more complex questions or research assistance, please visit the Reference Department in person. Customers from outside our service area asking questions not specific to the Newark/Licking County, Ohio area will be referred to their local libraries.
Research by e-mail is FREE, but we do ask that patrons pay for any photocopies made on their behalf as well as postage. Currently, copies are $.10 per page. Out-of-state residents will be charged an additional $5.00 per search if the search involves mailing copies.
For further instructions regarding local history or obituary requests or to check NPL’s genealogical resources, please visit our Local History & Genealogy page.
Librarians will do their best to answer your question, or suggest how you can further pursue your question, within 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays). Please note we are unable to reply to permission-based email systems, such as AOL or RoadRunner.
If you are having problems with the catalog or checking your account, please call 740.349.5500.
