If you know her PBS Nickname:

  • You can search the Member Directory (not available to A la Carte members) and click next to her listing there
  • You can click the link "Add New Friend" at the top left of Friends page and enter her nickname in the box that comes up
  • This will invite her to be your Friend - she will need to accept.  When she accepts, you will both go onto each other's Friends!

If you see a Post she made in the Discussion Forums:

  • Click her highlighted name to go to her PBS Profile and click there
  • If she has no nickname, you can click on her post to go to her account Bookshelf; click there
  • This will invite her to be your Friend - she will need to accept.  When she accepts, you will both go onto each other's Friends!

If you are looking at her account Bookshelf while requesting a book

  • click there

If you have a Personal Message (PM) from the member:

  • Click her highlighted name in the To or From field of the PM
    • these names will be highlighted, even if a member does not have a PBS Nickname
  • This will take you to her PBS Profile or account Bookshelf
  • Click there 
  • This will invite her to be your Friend - she will need to accept.  When she accepts, you will both go onto each other's Friends!

Doing any of these things will send an invitation to the member to be your Friend. If the member accepts, she will appear on your Friends (you will be added to hers too).  Pending Friends invitations can be viewed from the link at the top of Friends.
