What is Ask Us

Need more time with a library staff member than you can get over the phone or if you just walk in? Schedule an Ask Us Appointment.

Ask Us is a one-on-one session with a staff member tailored to meet your specific information needs. The Ask Us service is available at most Library Branches, and appointments are usually 45 minutes long.
