Book a Librarian

OWL is currently only offering virtual Book a Librarian sessions due to COVID restrictions

The Book-a-Librarian sessions are tailored to meet the technology needs of the individual. A library staff member will give undivided attention to patrons 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 online resources through the library’s website, or other computer basics.

Please contact us to set up your Book a Librarian Appointment by calling (860) 567-8030 or email Audra MacLaren at [email protected].  Sessions are usually scheduled from Monday through Friday and typically last 30 minutes.

Please note:  We will do our best to honor your Book a Librarian request.  However, due to staff expertise and availability, we can not guarantee your time or topic. We appreciate your understanding.
