Book a Librarian

    Book a Librarian is a service that connects CCPL cardholders by appointment with a librarian for a one-on-one help session. This free service can be used for questions that require time beyond the usual walk-in help and for more in-depth instruction on how to use library resources such as the library’s catalog, databases, and other digital services.

    Typical Book-a-Librarian sessions last from 30 minutes to an hour and may include—

    • Accessing digital books, audiobooks, magazines, movies, and music
    • Instruction on researching a topic using the library’s online databases
    • Genealogy guidance
    • Finding books and other resources for your child
    • Introduction to the library catalog, including how to find books, movies, or other materials; how to place holds; and how to set up and manage your account

    We are not able to—

    • Install software or set up a laptop or mobile device
    • Troubleshoot your personal devices
    • Teach general computer skills
    • Assist with credit card or other financial transactions
    • Proofread or type documents
    • Offer medical, legal, tax, financial, business, or personal advice
