The Rio Rancho Public Libraries are pleased to offer a free Book
a Librarian service.
Book a Librarian is an opportunity for you to request one-on-one, uninterrupted help from one of our professional librarians. Each 30-minute session will be tailored to your specific needs and compatible with your schedule. Assistance with computer skills, reading suggestions, in-depth research, or help with new technology are a few examples of how we can help.
If you would like one-on-one help, please submit a request via the Book a Librarian form for
a free half-hour session with a librarian. You will receive a response
within two business days of your request. For quick answers to your questions, feel free to use our Ask a Librarian service.
1. Who is eligible to make an appointment?
This free service is available to anyone. We encourage everyone to sign up for

2. Is there anything I can’t get help with?
We are unable to offer advice (e.g., investment, medical, legal) beyond sources
of information. We cannot troubleshoot or assist with maintenance of personal
electronics (e.g., computers, eReaders, tablets.) This is not a typing or tutoring
service. For tutoring assistance, please see Brainfuse HelpNow.
3. Do you offer instruction with computers or tablets?
We will work with you on your computer software questions and tablets. We
also offer computer classes which are free and open to the public (please check
our online calendar for more information). A librarian can also help you fill out the Book a Librarian online form, should you need assistance.
4. When and how long will my appointment be?
We require one week advanced notice on all appointments and they last up to 30 minutes. If more time is needed, you
may schedule another appointment.
5. Where will my appointment take place?
All appointments will take place at the Loma Colorado Main Library. However, if an e-mail or phone consultation
is agreeable and appropriate for both the patron and librarian, an in-person
meeting may not be necessary.
6. I need to cancel my appointment. What’s the best way to
Please cancel with the librarian with whom you made the appointment. If for
some reason you have misplaced this information, please contact the Loma Colorado Main Library to
cancel your appointment.
