The librarian who answers your question will use a range of Internet sources and specialized databases. If you need assistance specifically from your home library, your question will be referred and a librarian from your home library will get back to you via email.
Ask Us 24/7
Ask Us 24/7 is a virtual chat service that connects people with reference librarians. Ask Us 24/7 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. You will NOT be chatting with a librarian at the Lansing Community Library and may not even be chatting with a librarian in our community, but you will be chatting with a reference librarian.
Looking for help on a homework assignment or gathering information for writing an essay or research paper?
Head on over to the TCPL website where they have an awesome page dedicated to Homework Help. Your Lansing Community Library card works everywhere in the Finger Lakes Library System and you will need it (and your pin) to access some of the resources.
Need a quiet place to study, write or read? The library is perfect for that. We have a small teen study space located on the ground floor of the library along with many other nooks and crannies to settle into and get your work done.
Internet, Computers & Wi-Fi Services
The Lansing Community Library has four public computer stations with high-speed Internet access, two laptops and two iPads that may be signed out (but must remain within the library). The computers and laptops are equipped with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Patrons may print from the four computer stations. Printing may be picked up at the circulation desk. Printing costs are $0.25 per page black & white and $0.50 per color page.
All children and young adults who are issued library cards may access the public computer stations according to our Public Computer Use Policy. Access to Wi-Fi services via personal devices cannot be restricted based on age.
What can I do with my library card?
Borrow books, e-books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and video games. We even loan out e-readers like Kindles and Nooks.
