Book a Librarian (BAL)

Book a Librarian (BAL) is a by-appointment reference service that the Hood County Library provides for HCL cardholders who want one-on-one guidance.  Topics we can help you with include:

• Filling out an online job application
• Using one of the Library’s databases
• Setting up an email account
• A tour of the Library
• Creating a reading list
• Downloading Library ebooks or audiobooks to your eReader or tablet
• Downloading Freegal music
• Genealogical or school research


We cannot offer medical, legal, business, or financial advice but we can connect you to resources that can answer your questions.  We do not provide troubleshooting or technical services for your electronic devices.  Staff assigned to your appointment will be based on availability and expertise and will be either a librarian or a library staff member.
