Jefferson Davis Parish Public Library

Book-a-Librarian

Need more time with a librarian than you can get over the phone or if you just walk in? Use this form to Book a Librarian! These sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual. A library staff member will give undivided attention to customers 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, and other computer basics.

Other non-technical topics are also available for Book-a-Librarian sessions, including personalized help with a research project or help with job applications and interviews.

Please allow 1-2 business days for a response, especially when submitting questions over the weekend.

If you have questions or need immediate assistance, please call us:
