Book a Librarian

Need one-on-one personal reference assistance? Whether you need to research an assignment, find business, government, or medical information, search for an ancestor, or you would like an in-depth demonstration of how to use the library's databases, we can help you.

The Book a Librarian service allows you to reserve a free half hour session with a professional reference librarian at the Central Library.

How It Works
  • Appointments can be made Monday – Friday between 10 AM – 12 PM and between 2 – 5PM at the Central Library.
  • Please allow 1-2 days for a response, especially when submitting questions over the weekend.
  • In order to provide the best possible service we highly recommend having a Brooklyn Public Library card. Get a library card.

There is a lot of information out there. Let a BPL Librarian be your personal guide!
