Book a Librarian

What kind of Reading Suggestions will I get?

The list will be suggestions based on your responses to the form and your discussion with the librarian who will create the list.

How many suggestions will I get?

Your list will include up to 25 authors and /or titles.

How long do I have to wait for my list?

You should have your list within one week after we have received your completed form and talked with you.

How will I get my list?

The list will be emailed to you or you can pick up a copy at the Central Library, Fairhaven Branch, or Barkley Branch.

Will the library have the titles/authors on the list?

Yes! All lists will be compiled from titles owned by the Bellingham Public Library or the Whatcom County Library System. We cannot guarantee these titles will be on the shelf when you want them, but you can always place holds on them. If you do not know how to place holds on library material we will be happy to show you how.

How often can I request a new list?

At this time we ask that you request no more than one list per month.

What if I don't like the titles/authors on my list?

If you find you are not enjoying the titles on your list, please contact us. We will schedule another discussion with you about your reading preferences and create a new list.
