Book a Librarian

Please Note: We are currently not accepting any new Book a Librarian appointments
until we return to our Aylmer St. Main Branch in the New Year.

Our Book a Librarian service is designed to give you some extra help from one of our Library Information Staff members. While we love to help answer questions on the spot at our Information desk, sometimes we need a little more time to fully help you.

With our Book a Librarian service, we will personally help you with research questions, technology assistance, downloading eBooks and other library-related topics. You can book up to two 30-minute appointments per month. This service is for Peterborough Public Library members only. For more information on how you can get your free library card visit our Membership and Accounts page.

Please call us at 705-745-5382 ext 2340 or fill out the form below so we can schedule an appointment for you with the appropriate staff member. We will contact you to set up a time for your appointment which will be at our Main Library during operating hours, Monday - Friday. Please note our library is now temporarily located on the lower level of Peterborough Square during renovations at our Main Library on Aylmer St.

The Book a Librarian Service cannot:

  • Offer advice (e.g., medical, legal, investment, tax preparation) except to advise users of reliable sources of information.
  • Type or proofread your document, resume, cover letter, etc.  
  • Offer troubleshooting or maintenance help with personal computers
