Ask a Brighton & Hove librarian


Chat with a Brighton & Hove librarian in real time

If you need information, help with homework, or a library service, our librarians are here to answer your questions.

It's a bit like going into a library and asking a question in person, but instead the enquiry can be dealt with live from your computer or mobile device.

Please ask your question above and we'll respond.
