What is "Which Phone Book?"

"Which Phone Book" tells you which telephone book (or books) has listings for the California community or area code that you want. It includes all of the California telephone books that public libraries in California may request from the phone company. It also includes out-of-state phone books that include California communities. The index is updated continuously.

How do I get actual phone numbers?

You may use the California telephone books at these branch libraries: Central, Branciforte, Aptos, Boulder Creek, Live Oak or Scotts Valley. You may also get numbers by calling Directory Assistance at (area code) 555-1212. Or, if you need three numbers or less, the Library's telephone reference service can help you at 427-7713.
