What is the Personal Librarian Program?

(make sure you add your own personal greeting in this area)

The above title uses heading style  "Heading 2." What you see in the edit box will be transformed, with the original lower case changed to all upper case but with a font size half of the original.

How can I help you?

(Do not edit this area)

When using heading style with "Heading 3", there will be a blue line across the page under the title. 

Things I don't do (but I'll help you find out who can)

The next heading style of "Heading 4" will create a short line under title.

Other Heading

An example of "Heading 5." You probably shouldn't have to use this.

Smaller Heading size

And this the "Heading 6." Again, probably not needed.

Always make sure you save your changes!
