Book a Librarian

Reserve a free 30-minute session with a reference librarian at the Austin Public Central Library. We can:

  • Help you find scholarly articles for a research paper
  • Show you how to find competitors for your business
  • Help you with Library eBooks
  • Assist with job searches and resumes
  • Help you use email and social media

Please complete the form below to request an appointment. A librarian will contact you within 1-2 business days, and a session will be scheduled within a week of contact unless a later date is desired. Appointments are not available on weekends.

Additional appointments can be requested with a maximum of two appointments per month.

For quick, email reference questions, use Ask a Librarian. For a tour, please use the Group Library Visit Request form.
