Make an Appointment

Appointment booking opens 2 weeks before the scheduled time. Please only schedule one appointment. At the end of your appointment, you will have the option to schedule a follow-up appointment.

Please note which appointments are virtual: online or by phone, and which are in-person at a Library branch.

  • For phone appointments, call the number in your appointment confirmation email.
  • For online appointments, click the meeting link in your appointment confirmation email.
  • For in-person appointments, please arrive at the Library branch a few minutes before your scheduled time and notify staff at a service desk that you are there for your Your Next Job appointment.
