Need individual, uninterrupted help from one of our friendly librarians? Welcome to Book-A-Librarian!

The Book-A-Librarian service allows you to reserve appointments with librarians for up to one hour of uninterrupted, personalized reference assistance. 

In addition to our variety of technology classes and convenient walk-in tech clinics, Book-A-Librarian can help you accomplish the following:

  • Schedule a library tour, with instruction in use of the library catalog
  • Download eBooks or audiobooks to your digital device from one of our online resources 
  • Complete your school, business, genealogy, or local history research using the library's online research databases or other reliable government and non-profit resources
  • Compile a list of reading suggestions for you, your child, or your book club based on individual preferences and goals
  • Complete an online application form for employment, government services, etc.
  • Schedule a proctor for a college test.
    • There is a $10 fee per test, plus any additional postage or copy requirements. Cash and credit cards are accepted.
    • We accommodate paper and online tests. For online tests, students should have a laptop with settings compatible with the testing requirements in the event library equipment is not compatible. 
    • Due to the nature of the library, we cannot guarantee a private testing room or continuous monitoring throughout the exam. You will be in view of the proctor and the proctor will check on you periodically.
    • In the event of a staffing or library emergency, another professional librarian may step in to finish proctoring a test that has already begun.
    • If these conditions do not meet with the approval of the testing institution, the University of South Florida offers academic proctoring services at both campuses for non-USF students. Dial 727-873-4632 to reach the Student Success Center on the St. Pete campus. (  

We must decline requests for the following:

  • Typing, proofreading, and editorial services 
  • Removal of software viruses or malware, IT hardware repairs, etc.  

Librarians are not qualified to offer medical, legal, or business opinions.

  • To request an appointment: complete the form or call 727-369-0667.

  • We may be able to assist you via phone.

You may want to attend one of the library’s technology classes in lieu of or in addition to booking an appointment.
