This service is such an excellent feature during the uncertain times of COVID 19. The library staff member was extremely helpful and pleasant. They were very understanding of the circumstances and offered the perfect solution. I am very thankful for this opportunity to chat with the library during this time of closure.
This is a great tool! This is my first time using this service. I was having a hard time pulling up reviews for a book and the librarian assisted me by checking the Queen’s library website and google. They were really friendly and did not make me feel stupid for not being able to find what I was looking for.
