Memorial Day Closing

Ask a Librarian will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 30th. We will reopen Tuesday at 10 AM.


You will still have access to your local library’s Email, SMS, and Chat but the Statewide and Academic desks will be closed.

In order to reduce the number of missed chats on this minimally staffed day, we are asking all libraries with shared Ask a Librarian accounts (Alachua County, Daytona State College, Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida International University, Florida State University, Gulf Coast State College, Indian River State College, Southeastern University, University of Central Florida, and University of Florida) not to open the Academic or Statewide desks while you staff your local library’s chat. All other libraries will not see these departments listed, but they will reappear Tuesday morning.

Please contact the Help Desk with any questions, and have a great Memorial Day.

Thank you to all the Florida Libraries answering those questions and making Ask a Librarian possible.
