Finding Addresses and Telephone Numbers
Who are YOU looking for?
The library is a great place for print and online sources to help you find what you need. Phone numbers and addresses can be found in a variety of places. Certainly online as listed here but also in some places or books you might not think of right away. If you can't find it here, stop in or call the Reference Desk for help.
Did you know?
Landline versus cell phones – most cell phone numbers will not be listed in a public directory.
In the Reference area on the second floor we have approximately 117 paper Wisconsin phone directories, great for yellow page searching or small Wisconsin communities. We also have a few directories for select cities outside of Wisconsin.
