Sno-Isle librarians are eager to meet face-to-face with customers who "Book-a-Librarian" for a free 30 to 60 minute session of personalized help finding information or using technology.
The Book-a-Librarian sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual. A library staff member will give undivided attention to customers who want in-depth technical assistance on topics such as starting an email account, browsing the library's catalog, downloading e-books and audiobooks, searching the Internet, using electronic databases through the Sno-Isle website, or other computer basics.
Other, non-technical topics are also available for Book-a-Librarian sessions, including personalized help with a research project or helping you discover new books and authors that match your taste and interests.
Sno-Isle librarians are trained information professionals. If a staff member with expertise in a customer's area of interest is not available at their preferred community library, Sno-Isle Libraries will find a staff member in another Sno-Isle community to help you.
In 2008, Sno-Isle Libraries began providing this free one-on-one service at five community libraries, which then grew to 12 libraries. Due to the popularity and success of this program, 'Book a Librarian' is now available at all 21 Sno-Isle community libraries.
