The Reference Department of the Stoughton Public Library, headed by Reference and Adult Services Librarian Josh Olshin, provides a full-service information resource for all patrons.

For parents, we have books on homeschooling, child care, and family issues. To assist students with homework, many resources are available including a large collection of books on countries, biographical dictionaries, and science references, as well as sites on the Internet.

For children and teens, there are adult reference materials that can be used in addition to the reference materials in the Juvenile and Young Adult Departments.

Health-related information can be found in the Reference Book Collection and in health information databases which contain scientific journals, consumer magazines and newspaper articles. These are available through the library's website and the Old Colony Library Network by using your library card number as ID.

For all patrons, the Reference Librarian is always ready to give personal assistance. Just ask for the Reference Librarian at the Information Desk.
