Need one-on-one personal reference assistance? Whether you'd like to research for an assignment, find business, government, or medical information, search for an ancestor, or would like an in-depth demonstration of how to use the library's learning resources, 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.
How It Works
- Appointments can be made Monday – Friday between 10 AM – 12 PM and between 2 – 5PM
- Make an appointment with our online form.
- 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. Sign up for a free library card.
Let a BPL Librarian be your personal guide to our vast collection of high-quality information and resources available at the library!
