The Book-A-Librarian service from Johnson County Public Library allows JCPL patrons to reserve appointments with librarians for up to one hour of uninterrupted, personalized reference assistance. Librarians can provide training and assistance in the use of library collections and resources, including online databases and some software and internet resources. Librarians can help assess your research needs, select the appropriate resources, and train you to use them.
Uses of the Book-A-Librarian service may include:
- Training in the library's online research databases for some school, business, genealogy and other research
- Library tours and instruction in use of the library catalog
- Help with general computer basics, including internet navigation and word processing
- Help with selected government and employment resources
Librarians are not legal, medical or tax professionals. Some questions or topics may lead to referral to these or other information providers.
To schedule an appointment, click here or call any JCPL branch and ask for the Adult Reference Desk. A librarian will respond to your request within three business days. Appointments take place at the library during normal operating hours.
