Library Services

Library Services aims to fulfill all bookish needs, no membership card required. From community library development to personal reading curriculums, Library Services starts with one good book at a time. With experience as a bookseller, librarian, reader, reviewer, and writer, I provide these services on both client and community levels.

See all rates and services below. Trade and sliding scale options are offered for rural clients.

Community Libraries

Many of the nation’s libraries are located in remote or rural communities, staffed by one or two people, and integrated into a county network of book and resource sharing. I work directly with local librarians to help them audit their existing collections, access additional funding, and develop new strategies for aquiring materials that best meet the needs of their direct community.

Collections Audit

Through on-the-ground outreach
and census research, the goal of a collections audit is to find the gaps that exist on every shelf with special attention to local history and literature, media literacy, mental health, diversity, and inclusion.
Rate is variable and available upon request

Resource Development

A hard truth for any rural library and its patrons is that the smaller the budget, the larger the gaps. A hybrid helper program, resource development is part consultation and part advocacy--helping small libraries to plan budgets, locate funding, and build partnerships.
Rate is variable and available upon request


Personal Libraries

Inspired by author Umberto Eco’s immense personal library of around 30,000 titles, scholar and essayist Nassim Nicholas Taleb asserted that “Read books are far less valuable than unread ones.” His argument being that the more unread books you own, the more knowledge awaits you. At Library Services that is our philosophy too. Whether you’re looking to expand your collection or care for the library of a loved one, these services are for you.

This is a customizable service for personal libraries: a made-to-order portal to new worlds. Contemporary fiction? Art books? Classic novels? Spiritual texts? Whatever you like, I can build it.
Rate is variable and available upon request


One day, even Umberto Eco’s library may be given up to archives, relatives, and the highest bidder. For this reason, Library Services also offers appraisals, disbursement, and disposal. 
Rate is variable and available upon request
