Ask a Librarian, Florida’s virtual reference service, collaborates with 131 Florida libraries all working together to deliver first-rate reference services to users at their moment of need. Ask a Librarian takes customer service to a new level by offering Floridians fast, reliable and easy-to-use online reference assistance from anywhere in the state. It has been a vital service for 10 years connecting people to librarians 84 hours a week via live chat, email, and text messaging to receive assistance with homework, research projects, small business help, government services and general reference questions!


Ask a Librarian is an essential service for Florida libraries! A few examples:

- creates a cost effective method for Florida Libraries to offer live virtual reference services

- helps Florida Academic Libraries with SACS Accreditation

- provides after hour reference services for libraries struggling to serve their population at minimal cost


Please show your support for Florida’s Ask a Librarian service by signing this petition!
