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 Central Library and the Business & Career Library.
How It Works
- Appointments can be made Monday – Friday between 10 AM – 12 PM and between 2 – 5PM at Central Library or the Business & Career Library. Please note: In June 2016, the Business & Career Library will relocate to 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.
