Book A Librarian

Would you like a personal introduction to resources available at the library? Need more time with a librarian than you can get over the phone or if you just walk in? Then Book a Librarian! Twice a month you can schedule a 30 minute session with a librarian for a tailored, fit for you based appointment with basic technical assistance on topics such as creating an email account, browsing the library’s catalog, downloading e-books and audiobooks, using online resources through the library’s website, or other technology basics.
*We are unable to install software or troubleshoot your personal devices. Also, we cannot offer medical, legal, tax, financial, business or personal advice.
