#AskALibrarian every Thursday!


Stuck at home and need ideas on what to read next? You know what kind of book you want to read but not an exact title or author? Ask a librarian! Our expert team is ready to answer all your questions and make personalized recommendations.

Every Thursday, from noon until 1 pm, our librarians will be recommending books to you based on what you have read and enjoyed, or on what you would like to read, via Twitter #AskALibrarian.

Follow us at @opl_bpo to view the recommended titles, and join in on the conversation!

We would love to answer your book-related queries, or anything Library-related!
